No Ka Oi Tiki Tattoo – Philadelphia, PA

Mr. Baseball and I were in Philadelphia a few months ago, and found that the City of Brotherly Love has little love for tiki. But there is at least one notable exception: the No Ka Oi Tiki Tattoo Parlor.

We couldn’t leave Philly without trying some cheese steaks, and the No Ka Oi just happened to be about a mile from the most famous wiz wit purveyors, Geno’s and Pat’s, so we made a quick pit stop.

This detour unwittingly took us into the middle of South Street, a Venice Beach-like stretch in the Center City neighborhood with lots of neat storefronts like the one for No Ka Oi. (Fun fact: It means “the best” in Hawaiian.)

I didn’t get inked or anything, just popped in for a moment to snap a few pics, like of this tiki dude hanging out under the front counter.
