I've gotten two tattoos (one small, one large) and a navel piercing at the Aloha Monkey, and every time I'm there the staff and artists are courteous, engaged, and very helpful. No Cryin' Ryan Malone is the guy to go to for piercings - he's very professional and explains the procedure in simple terms. Both of my tattoos were done by Doug Hardy, and both turned out beautiful! For my first tattoo (the large one) I gave him some drawings and images to work with and explained how I wanted it to look, and he drew up a custom piece with intricate detail and fantastic coloring. While he was tattooing, he always made sure I was comfortable and let me get up to stretch and take a few breaks (it took two hours). The second, smaller tattoo was very neatly done. He had plenty of choices for lettering and has quite an eye for artistic detail, and did a fantastic job. Overall, the facility is very clean and professionally run, if a bit expensive. Consider, though, that high quality body art is always worth paying a little extra!
Pros: Talented artists, takes walk-ins, clean facility, art to choose from
Cons: A bit expensive
