On an other note. Could someone recommend me a good artist in Tokyo? I am looking for something clearly japanese, but not necessarily traditional japanese.

You should check out Shige at Yellow Blaze. His studio is in Yokohama but I guarantee you it is well worth the trip. I advise you to make an appointment before you go.
This is their website. ( http://www.yellowblaze.net/ )

Thinking about getting my first tattoo sometime this week. Still don't know what I want, but good ideas at following thread:

Brings me back to the days when I listen to hc and straight edge.

Hey man, from experience, DO NOT walk into a tattoo parlor with cash if you are not sure what you want. I make it a mandate that I go to a paror once I make up my mind WITHOUT money, then go back a gain a few weeks later to give myself time to make sure I'll get what I really want...and even still I have some regrets.

Thanks.

 

The only other time I thought about getting a tattoo was two or three years ago when I wanted to get a big straight edge X on my leg. I ended up not getting it and a month later started drinking. um, glad I didn't' get that. Of course, I am back on the straight and narrow so maybe this time that could be an option.

I am of the opinion that whatever you get, it should mean something to you. Something that will mean a lot to you for the rest of your life, and not something you're just into right now.

Plenty. London's got more world-class tattooers than ever these days. What kind of work are you after?

Hummingbirds and phoenixes aren't very old school - more Japanese-esque.

If you want old-school, as in traditional, old-looking, simple, Amerciana

Matty D'Arzenio at Into You
Emiliano and Stefano at Frith Street
Xam at Family Business
Bob Done at Magnum Opus (Brighton)
Ronnie at The Circle
Phillip Yarnell or Will Hutton at AKA London


If you want more elaborate Japanese-esque stuff with a traditional vibe to it:

Tutti Serra or Rodrigo Suto or Crispy Lennox at Black Garden
Claudie DiSabe at Jolie Rouge
Ian Flower at New Skool Tattoo (Essex)
Amy Savage, Jayne Doe (Hornchurch)

You're spoiled for choice, basically! :-D

One of these days, I'd like to get tattooed by Jordan at Frith Street. He's doing some truly amazing traditional work.. If I can ever make the logistics work that is.

This was done about 3 years ago. It took around 5 to 6 hours within 2 sittings. 2 of my buddies, including my best friend, have the same piece. But mine was the original! After its completion, my artist added a few minor details on the coffin.

 

 


PS. please don't quote or respond to the trolls. Let their comments be and keep posting works of art!

 

2 more pictures coming later today!

post #373 of 392

I've found a few pictures of some outline of my ink and the finished product.

 

 

 

 

I can't seem to find any pictures of my 1/2 sleeve...baldy[1].gif

Anyhow, I work in a conservative field. So 1/2 sleeves is all I'm planning on doing. Nothing visible while I'm in my work clothes. The chest piece took about 25 hours back in 2009 while the 1/2 sleeve took about 13 hours back in 2005. I plan on finishing my other 1/2 sleeves maybe within the next 2 years. I've since cut my hair and cleaned up my room. lol biggrin.gif Also, since then, I finished college and started my career. So in short, do I regret any of my art work?! HELL NO! Have you seen my artwork, son?! It's artistic, tasteful, and beautiful! (Didn't mean to sound like a douche. lol But I'm calling it as I see it). I look at it this way, I appreciate art so much that I'm willing to own it and carry it on my body where ever I go, and marvel at its beauty whenever I want! My body is a canvas so paint me a painting!

 

Anyhow, what surprised me was my Asian parents were actually ok with this. WHAT?!

 

Also, one of my co worker who happens to also be Asian, finished his full suit about 2 years ago! He is covered from collar bone down to his ankles a la Japanese yakuza irezumi.
