More NY

I think this is the 5th or so time I've done the NYC Convention. Whenever I travel and tattoo, I work with Diamond Club Tattoo Studio out of San Francisco. The Diamond Club is Bill and Junii Salmon, a very important and famous couple in tattooing. I am lucky to have had them as mentors and am honored to be part of their family. You can check out their work here,
We stayed with our friend Shinji, aka Horizakura of the Horitoshi family in Tokyo. He has been tattooing in NY for seven years now, and is the only 100% tebori (Japanese hand poke tattooing) traditional Japanese tattooer in America (meaning a machine outline, but all color exclusively by hand). You can check out his amazing work at
We had a lot of fun hanging out and he and his wife's hospitality was top notch.
Look forward to visiting again soon...
