Monarch Tattoo Studio is located at
53-534 Kamehameha Highway, Hau’ula HI 96717.
We are next to Kaya’s store in Punalu’u on Oahu’s beautiful North Shore. On the way to world famous Sunset, Waimea Bay, and Haleiwa beaches.
We do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18, no exceptions
Deposit required to book appointments. Deposits are nonrefundable and non transferable

Do not get sunburned prior to getting tattooed. Sun damaged skin results in a poor quality tattoo
Do not consume alcohol the night before or the day of your appointment. You will bleed excessively during the process
Be sure you have had a good meal before you come in. It’s no fun getting tattooed on an empty stomach

Laura and Aaron done amazing work on my husband and I. We probably changed our minds more than anyone, we let them do their thing and we got masterpieces! True artist. They made us feel very comfortable and made our 28th year anniversary wonderful! Plan on visiting again Mahalo!

I called 30 minutes before the shop closed and they happily let me walk in for a last-minute tattoo! Mike was awesome and professional. This was my tenth tattoo, but my first one done away from home (Canada) on vacation. No regrets, I love it!

Had a tattoo done in December 2017 by Laura and couldn’t have even imagined the tattoo being as amazing as it ended up. I will be coming back to have more done by Laura!

The shop had a great vibe. No flashy shit, only custom work. They take their time and listen to what you want. This is the first time I have given artistic freedom to the tattooist and I’m beyond happy with it. Mike took his time, although a heavy hand, he made sure I was happy. When I was there I saw 4 amazing artists, tatooists, do there thing, and everyone left happy. Thanks for the amazing tattoo Mike. Will surely recommend Monarch to anyone heading to Oahu. Thank you for my latest tat.

 came to Hawaii on vacation. I went to Monarch Tattoo as a walk-in and Mike (my artist) came up to the front right away and helped me out and gave me all the information I needed and started sketching my piece! The studio was very clean, very professional and comfortable!! He showed me the sketch once he was finished and drew what I wanted and threw in his touch! I love my new piece! And would come back to Monarch to get another! Highly recommend Monarch Tattoo!!

  1. Remove bandage after 1 hour. DO NOT re-bandage tattoo.
  2. Wash tattoo thoroughly and gently with liquid antibacterial soap. Blot dry with clean paper towel, air out a few minutes.
  3. Apply a thin layer of Tattoo Butter to tattooed area.
  4. Repeat steps 2&3 for 7-14 days, 3-4 times/day, until tattoo is finished healing.
  5. The tattoo will peel like a sunburn, this is a natural part of the healing process.
  6. Once your tattoo has finished peeling, you may switch to a mild lotion, use as needed.

DO NOT pick peel, or scratch your new tattoo.

ALWAYS wash your hands before touching your new tattoo or the aftercare ointment

AVOID exposing your fresh tattoo to the sun

NO ocean, beach, swimming pools or saunas

NO prolonged soaking of fresh tattoo in water

DO NOT take advice from your friends
