So I went to the 10th London Tattoo Convention, was quite an experience!
Actually I was there because I scheduled an appointment with a japanese tattoo artist named 文身彫とし (Bunshin Horitoshi) in order to receive a traditional japanese tatto.
For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, the traditional japanese tattoo is done without machines and just with wooden “sticks with needles at the end” all by hand, and it’s called 手彫り(Tebori).
So yes, after just eight and half consecutive hour I’ve got an amazing tattoo of Raijin 雷神 on my arm, and of course this is just the beginning, I’m looking forward to completing the whole three quarter sleeve in the traditional japanese way!
I’m very very happy with the result, even if it’s incomplete, I raccomend Bunshin Horitoshi, he’s an amazing artist as you can see from his works!
Also, here’s the link to the full photogallery of the event, there are also some very interesting videos I took about other hand tapped tattoo artists! London Tattoo Convention photo gallery
