Our Story

Once known as Blue Hawaii Tattoo, our shop's story is one of resilience and rebirth. In August 2023, the devastating fires that swept through Lahaina took with them our original home but not our spirit. The artists here have either owned or worked in a shop in Lahaina that was burned to the ground. However, we have come together and opened this shop under the name “Banyan Tree Tattoo” for the beloved Banyan Tree which was burnt but is growing back stronger than ever. Keep Going!

Our journey is a testament to the strength and unity of Lahaina, a community that stands together in the face of adversity. Today, Banyan Tree Tattoo is more than just a tattoo shop; it's a symbol of Lahaina's resilience, a place where art and healing come together.

As West Maui's premier tattoo destination, we invite you to be part of our story of rebirth. Here, every tattoo is a piece of art, every artist is a storyteller, and every client is ohana (family).

How do I choose the right tattoo design?

Start by thinking about what's meaningful to you or any designs you're drawn to. Our artists can help refine your ideas into a custom tattoo that suits your style. Feel free to bring any reference images or concepts to your consultation.

Can I bring my own design?

Absolutely! We love working with clients to bring their personal designs to life. During your consultation, we'll discuss how to best adapt your design for tattooing.

How long does a tattoo session last?

Session length varies depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo. Small tattoos may take an hour, while larger pieces require multiple sessions. We'll give you an estimated time frame during your consultation.

Pain Management FAQs

Does getting a tattoo hurt?

Yes, tattoos involve some level of discomfort since they are applied with needles. However, everyone's pain tolerance is different. We strive to make the process as comfortable as possible.

What can I do to minimize pain?

Ensure you're well-rested, hydrated, and have eaten before your appointment. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. During the session, focus on breathing and try to relax.

Safety Measure FAQs

Is it safe to get a tattoo?

Yes, at Banyan Tree Tattoo, we adhere to strict safety and hygiene protocols, including using sterilized equipment and disposable needles. Our artists are trained in cross-contamination prevention to ensure a safe tattooing environment.

What are the risks of getting a tattoo?

While rare, risks include allergic reactions to ink, infections, and scarring. Following our aftercare instructions significantly minimizes these risks.

Can I get a tattoo if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

We recommend waiting until after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Changes in your body and skin, along with the risk of stress and infection, make it safer to postpone getting a tattoo.

Aftercare FAQs

How do I care for my new tattoo?

Keep the tattoo clean and moisturized, avoid sun exposure, and do not soak the area. We'll provide detailed aftercare instructions tailored to your tattoo.

What should I do if I think my tattoo is infected?

If you notice signs of infection, such as excessive redness, swelling, or pus, contact us immediately. We can advise you on the next steps and may recommend seeing a doctor.

Tattooing Process FAQs

Miscellaneous FAQs

Can I go swimming after getting a tattoo?

Avoid swimming, soaking in a tub, or prolonged exposure to water for at least two weeks after getting a tattoo to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.

How long until I can expose my tattoo to the sun?

Wait until your tattoo has fully healed, which can take up to two weeks. Even after healing, use a high-SPF sunscreen to protect the tattoo and keep its colors vibrant.

Do you offer touch-ups?

Yes, we offer free touch-ups within the first six months, provided you've followed our aftercare instructions. Some exceptions may apply, which we can discuss during your consultation.

These FAQs are designed to address the most common concerns and questions regarding the tattooing process, safety, and aftercare. If you have more specific questions, don't hesitate to contact us directly.
