Finished today. Hopefully I can get some better pictures after it heals. Three sessions total.

Koi and Chrysanthemum Leg

Second shading session. First sitting on this one that wasn't four hours or so...nice.


Always fun to get to do a nice one shot tattoo. Still loving the Japanese white...

Koi and Flowers Sleeve

Stencil on the flowers and fish, freehand brush pen for the rest. Went very smooth...only 15-20 minutes of drawing/layout time and 3 1/2 hours of tattooing...
(I did the koi on top about a year ago)

Snake and Peonies sleeve

Started last year, almost finished...
(This guy is the shit. He has burned me at least a hundred old Japanese samurai movies!)

Phoenix 1/2 sleeve

1st color session. Slow and steady...

Shitaro Katsu

A personal hero of mine.
Watch any "Zatoichi" movie that he starred in and you'll understand what I'm all about...
