I’ve done lots of research on Japanese tattoos long before I became a tattoo artist. I’ve scoured the internet looking for tattoo ideas but I never could locate the exact one I was looking for. Why? Because most of the good photos are old… and in those things we call books! Here is a list of the 10 most popular Japanese tattoo books (available on Amazon).
Shunho, tattoo artist from the Horitoshi Family, will traveling from Tokyo to attend the NYC Tattoo Convention on May 18, 19 and 20th. He’s one of my favorite artists -> check out his blog for pics of his work.
He still has some time available so email him if you want to get a traditional Japanese hand poked tattoo
“Solid Ink” by tattoo artist Federico Ferroni is now available online at www.thesolidink.com
I tattooed a traditional rose on a friend today. It was fun… and I learned that redheads only have 6 layers of skin… not 7 like the rest of us. Is that really true?
