OLIVIA RIFE INK
Better known to most as Oli, started tattooing at the end of 2009. She’s quite the rolling stone. Although born and raised on the East Side of Oahu, she now resides on the West Side of the island on the Waianae coast.

This was my very first tattoo experience and it was great! I had been following Olivia Rife on Instagram for about 6 months when I finally got the courage to go in and get my tattoo. I was very nervous, but Olivia was great and gave me exactly what I wanted and I couldn't believe it hurt way less than I was expecting. It's more of an uncomfortable feeling than pain, so I'm already thinking of my next tattoo! The shop was clean and I highly recommend Olivia! Thanks Olivia Rife, you Rock!!
My friend came to visit and wanted us to get tattoos. While eating lunch we complimented a girl on our tattoos and she told us about Olivia. We looked up her artwork and right after lunch we stopped by the shop met Olivia and told her what we were thinking. We set up our appointments a few days later and went in today. I cannot speak enough great things about Olivia. She is an amazing artist and a really cool person. The time flew by and it is my favorite tattoo. I am already planning other ideas to go back to her. Go see Olivia...you wont regret it!!
Pearl City, HI
The shop is very clean!
I went in to get a tattoo done by Olivia. I had reached out to her previously to show her what I was interested in getting and she replied within minutes and told me that she would draw something original for me. She had sent me the digital of what she had drawn within 24 hours and was able to take me within a week of our initial conversation.
She absolutely KILLED it. I couldn't have asked for a better design and quality work. I'll definitely be back for another! Definitely swing by and ask for her!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where are you located?
I am currently working at West Coast Ink in Kapolei, Hawaii located on the west side of the island. I take walk ins from time to time when my schedule permits but mostly work by appointment.
How do I book an appointment?
All bookings are made via email. Please fill out the tattoo request form on my site to start the appointment process. Please be prepared to pay a $100 deposit to book an appointment. Appointments are never guaranteed without a deposit and will not be held without.
What if I don’t hear back from you?
You may send a follow up email to email@example.com. Sometimes emails can end up in my spam folder or might have been overlooked. Please understand that it may take up to 1 week to receive a response but if its been longer please feel free to reach out.
What are your rates?
Starting March 2020 my minimum will be $250 on any appointment tattoos. If you want to stop by the shop and try to get a walk in you can (shop minimum starts at $100) but as far as setting an appointment my minimum is $250 no matter the size. Most of my pricing is a flat rate based on size and placement, etc. Unless it is large piece that will require multiple sessions I charge an hourly rate of $150/hr. In order to give you a price quote on a custom design, please make sure you are descriptive as possible with your tattoo request (especially with size) and include reference photos.
How much is your deposit and what are your deposit policies?
A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $100 is required to book an appointment. Deposits can be submitted via Venmo/paypal/cash app. I will send you a payment links for your convenience. The deposit goes toward the final cost of your tattoo. Your final balance must be paid in cash at the time of your appointment. For multi-session tattoos, the deposit will be held and taken off your last session. Deposits need to be sent as soon as a date and time is agreed upon to secure your appointment. Otherwise, you risk losing your spot. Deposits are non-transferable. I require a 48hr notice to reschedule. Failure to give a 48hr notice will result in the forfeiture of your deposit. Only one reschedule is permitted. If you reschedule a second time, you will forfeit your deposit regardless of notice and will need to submit a new deposit to reschedule a second time.
Can I see the design before my appointment?
I understand that you want to be involved in every step of the process in designing your tattoo, and that you may want to see a full drawing/sketch before your appointment for approval. However, designs will not be ready to view/ make changes to until the day before your appointment. Please review my portfolio prior to submitting a tattoo request so you can see the styles of work that I can provide for you and I ask you to put your trust in me as an artist to give you the best possible result.
Do you do coverups? Fix old tattoos?
I do coverups from time to time. Every case is different, and sometimes I decline. Please send a photo of your tattoo(s) if inquiring about any cover-ups, fix-ups, or re-do’s.
How do I care for my tattoo?
Besides choosing your tattoo design and getting the ink done at a studio, tattoo aftercare is by far the most important aspect of your tattoo journey. Post-tattoo care should not be taken lightly – you need to know how to take care of a tattoo as best as possible. Failing to follow your tattoo artist’s advice could lead to damaging consequences.
I have everything you need to know on my aftercare sheet and also available in the site.
