Samurai Dragon by Loren86 Samurai Dragon by Loren86
Full back piece design for my Ju Jitsu sensei, original pencils cover a full A2 sheet. This will probably take at least 60 hours of tattooing, starting in December. By far my most ambitious tattoo project yet.

The quality of Samurai Dragon, a wonderful tattoo design by ~Loren86, is simply mind-blowing. All the fine details make it not easy to tattoo on a body but very unique nonetheless. ( Suggested by Yasny-chan and Featured by Lilyas )

Oh, it's a very beautiful samurai sketch DeviantArt DeviantArt  Samurai tattoos are very common among the Japanese people, and they have only recently become more common in other cultures. Wink/Razz Wink/Razz  They are very well detailed, as it is with all things Japanese, and they tend to become big. ;) (Wink)  As a result, they are mostly worn on the shoulder, back, chest and sometimes the forearm.

amazing work. only thing is that japanese style dragons only have 3 toes. asian tradition states that after a koi reaches the mouth of the yellow river and becomes a dragon, it initially has 5 toes. the further down south the dragon fly the more toes fall off. chinese dragons have 5, korean 4, and japanese have 3.
