Hannya, Koi and Lotus Japanese style sleeve

This is my very first ever in the whole wide world Japanese sleeve.. Obviously not traditional Japanese style; more the westernised version popularised by the great Filip Leu – one of my heros. More like this please!

First of the month and no returns

Did this nice feather today; I don’t do much of this ‘painterly’ style but I really enjoy it. I try to stick to the rules (lots of black, strong shapes etc) so it holds up over time but it’s nice to have the certain amount of freedom this style allows; I love the textural effect too, especially when any white is fresh. It kinda has a nice ‘grainy’ lookthat I like a lot. Will be good to see how it heals up…Also my customer Alex popped in to make an appointment so I grabbed the opportunity to take some photos of the woodcut lilies I did on him awhile back…. I like this style too; a bit different in that you have to be pretty precise with those lines!! If you wanna see this kind of work done by a true master I would suggest checking out the work of Duncan X; gentleman; scholar and all round good egg! One of the most original tattooers out there right now… http://www.duncanx.com
