Not many people know this but I LOVE tattoos!! I mean really LOVE tattoos.
So getting a chance to watch a master at work was a dream for me. I was
worried that i would not get a chance to show this doc after my hard drive
failed. Luckily i was able to save a lot of the footage. Enjoy!
This guy is a master!
I have heard it both ways. Some people say that this hurts less and that
they have fallen asleep while getting work done. Others say that its much
He said “all handmade is the most valuable thing in any genre”, i agree

i want some of that real tattoo fr
Thank You for share^^ Impressive video, awesome art ~<3
@zusuky21 i dont know…i think with modern tats you get what you pay for,
it all depends on the artist, their equipment and the quality of the ink.
Ive seen some pricey tats that have still to this day never faded and look
like they were printed or like someone slapped a pic on them due to how
much detail is in it. Btw you wanna see old school tats? This is nothing,
look at tatau’s. They had to hammer it into your skin and there was no
metal or stone to make it easier, all wood 😉
I already have a Japanese dragon half sleeve to chest but I hella want to
get another one done in Japan!!

actually ON ourselves, where we can never view it from the outside. And
Horimyo’s use of contemporary methods to create his designs shows his
progressiveness and ability, as an artist, to make something new.
Iv’e always been curious, why do irezumi artists always wear face masks ?
I know. This looks more painful than the machine >.<
Question is does it hurt more compared to using the machine?
Saving my back for this style. Hoping one day I can meet someone like him.
wow!!!i’d love to have a tebori tattoo!very nice video!thank you!
but can you really tell what tattoo is made by which style? whats the
benefit from doing it old school really?
I wonder what the pain level is for this style vs the machine way. There’s
a shop in my town that happens to do this technique and I would love if
Simply amazing. It’a a dream for me to be able to travel to Japan to
experience a tebori style tattoo.
