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

Unlike some of the pro-gangster public baths I was hanging at...
"G-san" spent 120 hours under the needle when he was 17, to get this full-back tattoo.

Three random tattoo ideas
My tattoo'd feetsies. :D Nudnik is Yiddish for "Pain In The Ass". My grandpa gave me this nickname when I was in diapers, and he still calls me it. Yes, it freakin hurt. I am going to get it touched up soon. I will probably be adding white to the kitty, and make the Star of David blue. I am addicted to Tattoos.
This is the idea i have for my main tattoo design. This will be placed on my right bicep about 7inches long, and 4-5 inches wide. It will be in black and white. This is just the basic outline and still needs textures and shading.
