    Very nice,
    I've always wanted a tatoo, but I think I'll wait until I get fat. The picture I have in mind won't fit on me.

    Default We can make anything fit

    Well, most traditional Japanese tattoo involves covering large pieces of the body. I bet it would fit on your back Dan.

    Default authorship of the hanya.....

    I have a large collection of japanese and japanese influenced tattoo art. I think, off the top of my head that that design is by Adam Sky from Vancouver B.C.. I will check that however, and post if found wrong.I will confesss that it was bad form of me not to state the authorship of the designs with the postings. I will post some of my own stuff up here once I get a new scanner. I had hoped others would share as well.

    Default correction

    the hannya is by Ulrich Winther. I have no other info on this artist,
    Mr. Desmond perhaps you would post some of your work here? It is most impressive.

    Default My work

    this is what I had on the hard drive, They are of course not intended to be flash, but these clients have consented to having thier tattoos shown publicly.
    My work often borrows from japanese styles but is more truly a pan-asian hybrid in these instances.

    You instantly recognize a traditional Japanese tattoo on sight because they are so unique, and huge. Hardly do you find a tiny one, because they have so much detail inside http://tattoo-journal.com/35-beautif...anese-tattoos/

    That's right Sergio. Japanese tattoos are incredible detailed and no matter what, there's no 2 the same tattoos. Japanese tattoos are usually big and are larger than other types of tattoos. Some of them are even called body suit, because are placed on almost every part of body. This is beautiful art, but some people can think about you as a criminal or something (this is very popular opinion about tattoos in Japan and other oriental countries). Here it is some example of Japanese tattoo: Click image for larger version.
