Yesterday, I (Brad) stopped by the Black Diamond Tattoo shop in Venice, CA to meet up with our artist, Shingken Sakamoto. We’ve been planning a tattoo with him for a few months now. Here’s the outline of what mine would look like:
After a bit of excitement (it’s 8 inches from top to bottom!), I went home and began to think seriously through the colors of the tattoo for the next day.
I arrived at noon, we started at 1:30, and finally finished at 7. Not going to lie, it was rough.
After another 2 hours we were finished, with two amazing tattoos that were designed to compliment each other, and have lots of inner meaning. We’ll post close-ups in a few weeks after the healing process is over.
