I am never a fan of Japanese tattoo. How a traditional Japanese tattoo is being made is daunting enough to keep many tattoo enthusiasts away. It’s not difficult to understand why. You need to endure years of pain, spend ten of thousands of dollars, and the most scary part is, it is usually done manually by a tattoo master using a paint brush with 2 dozen razor sharp needles. Having said that, you will be impressed by the beauty of this spectacular body art if you saw it in person. Its lavishly used of colors and detailed drawing display a real and vivid image that always give viewers a jaw-dropping visual experience. Guys I’m not kidding, the samurai looks like he’s flying out anytime with his wakizashi (samurai’s honour blade)!!
