Dream Jungle Tattoo

WWII Tattoo Machine Exhibit

One of the most important eras of tattooing was during World War II where soldiers were tattooed by the droves in every port town across the United States. One of those port towns was in Honolulu, Hawaii where in its Chinatown scores of tattoo shops catered our men and women in uniform.

At that time, Eugene Miller was the youngest tattoo artist in the world at the age of 13. Dream Jungle Tattoo presents a small tattoo machine exhibit found in an old pickle jar of his garage. As pictures never give you the real feel of the real thing, we welcome you to stop by and check out a bit of history in person. For free. Or a burrito.
