So I complete school in about 12 days. I've made an appointment with Kevin Marr of Godspeed Tattoo in San Mateo, CA for May 30. Marr is one of the best irezumi artists in the US. Irezumi is Japanese style tattooing. I've requested he do the Shinto kami Tenjin, who is the Japanese patron saint of education. Included will be various East Asian food references for obvious reasons. This artist is amazing, I'm beyond psyched for this one. Check out his work here:

Right calf, rear taking up most of that area. He's 100% in charge, I've handed him all control. Looking at his work, I'm not worried about it. His detail is sick!

This is who it's based off, you can imagine what he's going to do with it.

BTW, I love how the stars and dots background unifies all your tatts - it's a really clever way to bring them all together, and I think it looks great!

Thanks! That's the western traditional style, I love how it came out. I'm thinking the right leg will be decidedly Asian themed with food refs.

Watching the "America's Worst Tattoos".

 

The thing that gets me is how long some Tattoos takes.  (4-7 hours for these cover ups).

 

DHJ, do you know how long the tat will take?

Looks good, dude.

 

and I know the feeling. I've done 3 out of 4 sessions on a big rib tat. Sweet mother monkeyfuckers, it hurts. But it's so pretty.

 

So is that finito? Or are you gonna color/detail more? (sorry, I haven't kept up with all the details...)

No it's done. The closer you get, the more detail you can see. The robe is plain because these particular deities deal in being humble. By the end of the session, the artist's name was goddamn goatsucker.

Andy when all was said and done, 4.5 hours.

My observations..
Pro) it will age very well ,not turn into a puddle after ten years.
Great use and lack of use of color on the robe.
I dig it. It actually has meaning behind it rather than "oh i saw it on the wall and just had to have it."

Con) needs more bamboo :) i like bamboo

YES. I think this is the #1 reason people bitch about ink down the road, because they didn't actually think about what they put on their bodies. I want to slap them for being stupid.

 

All of mine have a lot of meaning to me.

Same here. My entire other leg is a tribute to my wife and children. Each one symbolizes them and my love for them, and what they're named for.

 

The other leg...last night. That was all for me and symbolizes my journey through my education.

Damn straight! I hope you'll share it when it's done.

My cousin got a cool artist's rendition of the Gonzo fist. Kind of fractalized and segmented. It's unique, but you can still tell what it's supposed to be.
