I must admit that even though I truly dislike tattooing, I`ve seen some amazing inkwork, from unique designs to near-photographic quality images. My ex shop partner`s wife had a photo of their late Son done on one forearm. Why, I don`t really know, but it was remarkable.
I completely agree with you. I am no fan of tattooing myself, but art is art. I greatly admire the Japanese school and have seen tattoos here that are quite amazing.
