Body Suit Progress

Be Consistent 

Progress in irezumi is slow.  It takes years of dedication, perseverance and steadfastness to accomplish that which only the Japanese tattoo has to offer- a cohesive body tattoo that tells a visual story.  It's not intended to tell the wearers story but rather that of his values, virtues, heroes and gods, and culture.  It tells of something bigger than himself.  It becomes communal.
