Today i did the second session on Howards backpiece. I am very excited about this one. It is moving quickly and i am capturing the look i am shooting for. It has taken almost 20 years to achive this goal and to create work that even slightly represents what true horimono is. I do this with respect in my heart to the masters that have done this craft many years before me.
I pour a piece of my soul into every tattoo that i make, as did they.
I have dedicated my Life and spirit to this Tradition.
It was nice to do some one off tattoo’s that i can complete in one visit this week, Like the previous Seahorse and eagle. Although my true passion lies in ( horimono) large scale japanese style tattoos. Large tattoos like this take a toll on my body ( neck and back, eyes and mind). But this physical sacrifice i make for my craft is part of the deal i made.
I hope my efforts show in my work and i am thankful for all my clients ongoing dedication.
