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.
