Hopefully Glen’s tattoo went well this afternoon – chatting about tattoos with both Glen and Alexis has made me think a bit more about whether I want a tattoo (which I’m pretty sure I do) and if so what I would want (which I am fairly clueless on).

Whilst scouting around for ideas I came across this interview with Horiyoshi III:

I think if I was to get a tattoo I wouldn’t quite have the balls to:

  • Have it done with what appears to be a large screwdriver
  • Have a full body irezumi

That aside his work is pretty amazing – reminds me of a guy I once saw in a Kyoto bathhouse.

More of his work from his website:

It appears you will also soon be able to buy Horiyoshi III clothing.
