Isn't Lynette adorable!
I made her be my model, put on a sexy red dress, and join me at Waller Park, where she endured two hours of pedantic conversations and lame attempts at pose directions.
The last piece in the series is a bowl, based on the original drawings.
The bowl with a skull in the middle. The drips are shibuichi 25/75 and the bowl inner is shakudo. The outside of the bowl is sterling silver and 50/50 shibuichi. The skull is fine silver.
why this one turned out so well i do not know.

Three random tattoo ideas
One of the underappreciated aspects of Japan - the festivals or matsuri (祭り) all over the country. There are thousands of types of festivals across the calendar & country, from the exciting to the serious, the spectacular to the unbelievable to the just straight up weird. This one is the Sanja Matsuri (三社祭) in Asukusa Tokyo. People carry around this portable shrine called Mikoshi (神輿) from one shrine to another. They are extremely heavy and people get injured and huge bruises on their shoulders. This scene is when the Yakuza group were carrying the Mikoshi and the leaders of this Yakuza group got on top of it, took off their clothes to expose their tattoos, and then revved up the crowd. What isn't in this picture is the 200 police behind me waiting (praying that nothing happens here...)
