1 Point Tattoo opened its doors in July 2016 after owner/master tattoo artist Simon Halpern joined forces with several of Oahu’s leading tattoo artists.
The name 1 Point comes from a bit of history; it is what Japanese artists would call American tattooers for their one point of reference tattoo style, like the Sailor Jerry pin up girl that would be finished in one session.
We don’t have customers as much as we have clients. People that appreciate tattoos and the art of tattooing and want to work with us to create imagery that will look amazing now as well as 20 years from now. We aim to give each customer the time they need to feel comfortable with the entire process from consultation, tattoo time as well as time to go over proper after-care instructions.
1 Point takes a minimalist approach to the shop creating a clean and safe working environment for staff and clients.
We follow all Hawaii State Department of Health guidelines and are Blood Borne Pathogen certified to ensure continued safety in the shop.
