Japanese Styled Tattooing

I’ve always been heavily influenced by the timeless look of the traditional japanese tattooing.  It has such strong imagery, smooth flowing backgrounds, and stands alone by itself.  I would say that i am not a “traditional japanese ” tattooer, but i like to take the themes, imagery, and over all style, to help tell a story with the designs i make.  I would love to do a lot more of this.
