The Collective has been featured in the new Winter Quarter edition of Go Kailua Magazine (pp. 28-29).  Enjoy a few words about us in a nice article by Yu Shing Ting.  We’re grateful for the coverage and hope you enjoy learning a little more about why we’re here.

Also new are our Sunday hours, which are now 9am-2pm each and every Sunday.  Be sure to drop by as part of your market mornings, with our neighbors the Lokahi Kailua Market & the Aloha Home Market.  We have become a recurring place for friends to gather and spend quality time together.


Looking into January, we are happy to announce the return of Lai (@tattoist_lai) from Seoul, Korea AND Flor and Fabio (@bagtattoostudio) from Buenos Aires, Argentina AND Dani (@dani_sahne_ink) from Austria.  All four of these artists joined The Collective as guests during 2019, and will come back for some time in the shop beginning in mid-January.  All are welcoming deposits now to reserve time for appointments.

We are registered for the Honolulu Tattoo Expo at the Hawaii Convention Center from January 24-26, 2020.  The Collective has reserved a 6-station booth where our Guests and In-House artists will be working.  See our Artists page to reach out to your favorite artist and set up an appointment.  Contact this Eventbrite link for ticket information.  $40 + tax gets admission all weekend.  Military $10 day passes also available.  GET INKED under the BRIGHT LIGHTS in the BIG CITY!
