Yakuza - Tattoowise
The original article for this image lives at tokyo.japantimes.co.jp/post/en/545/Sanja+Matsuri.html
I got an inspiration for a new yakuza tattoo and had an extra FR Homme body around to use as canvas. I bought a Hot Toys Goemon Saizo head to complete the doll. I think this tattoo came out better than the first one as I researched lots of ukiyo-e and yakuza symbolics in order to create it.
From a tattoo shoot I did in Japan. More at FANTiM.COM
Taken at Enoshima beach

"G-san" spent 120 hours under the needle when he was 17, to get this full-back tattoo.

Collaboration with Dave Frayne. Inkwork by Marc Pinto (right arm - traditional work). Thanks to Dave for a terrific photo shoot. It was Dave's first and he took to it like a seasoned portraiture model.
