Hello and welcome to our tattoo blog! At The Collective, we’re excited to use our blog to share some of our tattoo artists artwork, tips, inspiration, events and other helpful resources for our tattoo shop in Kailua. However, before you begin our blogging venture, we thought it would be best to introduce ourselves, as we are unlike any other Hawaii tattoo shops.


Unlike other tattoo studios in the area, The Collective offers custom work to feed your unique ink habit. Our tattoo shop features four artists, as well as guest artists from all around the world that are highly experienced in a variety of tattoo styles, including full-cover tattoos, black and grey tattoos, tattoo cover-ups, Japenese and Polynesian tattoos, and many more!

Additionally, our tattoo studio includes an art gallery space, and a cafe that offers a great menu featuring coffee, savory breakfast wraps, chef-prepared lunchtime specialties, and delicious desserts to satisfy all of your cravings while you are getting inked up! You see, we’re all about art, inside our tattoo studio, throughout the gallery space, and within our cafe.


At The Collective, customer comfort is a top priority. As a tattoo studio that specializes in personalized and custom tattoos, we are a step-up from the regular walk-in tattoo shop. If you are interested in getting a tattoo, the first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our talented artists. During a consultation, you’ll have a chance to get to know the artist and discuss and design the tattoo you are envisioning. After the initial meeting, you can choose a date to get your tattoo started!

At The Collective we are committed to providing our clients with a comfortable and friendly atmosphere while maintaining an exceptionally clean and safe environment. If you are interested in booking a tattoo consultation, contact our Kailua tattoo shop today! Be sure to stay tuned to our blog, as we will continue to share other helpful tips and resources!
