We are not just a tattoo shop. We also offer a full line of high quality implant grade body jewelry for professional body piercings. In addition we offer a large selection of organic jewelry for healed piercings. We carry jewelry from Neometal, Industrial Strength, Buddha Organics, Body Vision (BVLA), and Glasswear Studios just to mention a few. All of our piercers have over 10 years experience. Having performed thousands of body piercings, you can be sure that your piercing will be placed well and executed with precision and speed.
In addition to all these services, we also offer quality aftercare products to help clients heal from both tattoos and body piercings. Aftercare is very important to us to ensure that your Maui tattoo or piercing has the best chance to properly heal.
Our sanitation standards are the same as any hospital. Single use needles and a large variety of disposable supplies are used on every tattoo to virtually eliminate the chance for cross contamination. Soular Tattoo ensures all of our artists are current on bloodborne and airborne pathogens cross-contamination certifications. We utilize two autoclaves in our studio to sterilize our equipment. Monthly spore tests are performed on both of our autoclaves to ensure they’re working properly.
We offer a full line of only the highest quality body jewelry for professional body piercings. APP certified implant grade Titanium and Stainless Steel is the best to heal new piercings with. We also do micro dermal anchors, surface piercings, and large gauge initials.
All of our implant grade jewelry for body piercing is made of the highest quality 316LVM implant grade stainless steel, Titanium, Niobium, 18kt Gold, or Glass. We use only internally threaded or threadless body jewelry at our studio because we want the best for our customers.
We have a shop minimum of $100. Most tattoos will be priced based on the piece from the artist doing the work. Larger pieces will be charged with an hourly rate fit suitable for the piece.
Everyone has a different level of pain tolerance, so unfortunately its difficult to give a straight answer. Some areas hurt more than others, especially bony areas with thinner skin. Most people equate it to a hot scratch. Remember, if it hurt that badly, people would not be returning for multiple tattoos!
If you’re visiting Maui, we suggest getting tattooed at the end of your trip, since it is not recommended to go back into the water or be in the sun with a fresh tattoo.
Yes. We require a non-refundable deposit to book time on the schedule. The amount varies based on the length of your appointment. The deposit will come out of the final total of the finished tattoo. Deposits ensure your time and the artist’s time.
We like to accommodate walk-ins when we can, but we do recommend booking your appointment ahead of time. We cannot always guarantee that we will have an artist available at the time you come in, so booking and leaving a deposit will ensure the time is set aside for you.
Consults are free, 15 minute appointments that allow you to talk in person with the artist about your design. If you’re visiting, we suggest booking consults at the beginning of your trip. Consults are required for coverups and multi-session pieces like half sleeves, full sleeves, etc.
It can often be distracting to both the artist and the client to have spectators, so it’s up to the artist’s discretion. Generally, we will allow one person to come back with you while you get tattooed. Additionally, because the shop is a sterile environment and we’re dealing with biohazard materials, we do ask that you’re careful/aware of your surroundings. We love children and allow them in the shop, but we do ask that they are well behaved and carefully watched over.
Great! Reference photos are the best way to help us know what you want to get done. We are a custom shop though and will work with you to give you an original piece based on your reference photos. You can bring them in to your consultation or include them in an email to us with your booking inquiries.
With parental or guardian consent. Normally, 16 is the minimum age for tattoos and piercings here at Soular (with the exception of earlobes) but final decision is left up to the artist/piercer’s discretion. We like to meet with the minor before hand to talk about design and placement before they agree to do it. Additionally, we require photo ID of both the minor and legal parent/guardian on the day of the appointment. We do have certain age restrictions on piercings, so contact the shop if you have questions regarding piercings.
We do accept cards over the phone for deposits, but we do ask that you bring cash for the remaining balance of the tattoo. For all goods and services (including piercings, jewelry, and aftercare) we do prefer cash but can take a card if necessary. However, a 4% Service Fee will be applied to all credit card transactions.
We’re now charging a 4% state tax on all goods and services.
We require 48 hour notice for cancellations. Short notice cancellations and no call/no shows result in losing your deposit. You will need to leave a new deposit in order to rebook your appointment(s).
A. Always eat a good meal beforehand! Low blood sugar can sometimes cause dizziness/fainting. Additionally, make sure to be well hydrated, especially in this Maui heat!
B. Make sure that you don’t get sunburned. We cannot tattoo over freshly burned skin, so make sure to cover the area you plan to get tattooed and apply sun screen generously!
C. Wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind if they get stained with ink. If you’re getting a thigh tattoo please wear shorts. For chest/back tattoos we recommend no shirts for the men, swimwear for the women.
D. Relax! And don’t be afraid to ask us any questions you may have! We’re here to help you feel comfortable and ready for your tattoo experience.
Its recommended to wait until your tattoo or piercing is fully healed. Healing time can vary and a lot of factors can affect the healing process; on average tattoos take about 2 weeks to fully heal and piercings can be anywhere from 4-6 weeks. For a more specific estimated healing time based on your tattoo/piercing feel free to ask!
