    If you’re going to get a tattoo make sure it hurts as much as possible.

    WoW yeah it gave me great joy to watch this master at work and, the fact
    that he is always striving to improve is a testament to his commitment to
    his art.

    Thank You.

    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!

    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
    more painfull.

    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 😉

    This is a beautiful art form. We think of art in general as something we
    view outside of ourselves and experience in that way, but this art is
    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.

  • zimThuet 5 years ago

    but can you really tell what tattoo is made by which style? whats the
    benefit from doing it old school really?

  • CjWalsh928 5 years ago

    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
    someone knew.

  • housefanatic0411 5 years ago

    Simply amazing. It’a a dream for me to be able to travel to Japan to
    experience a tebori style tattoo.
