I’ll find what I can
As always, great info. Thanks, man.
No worries. I’m not sure how much he charges per hour. It’s probably several hundred dollars US. At one point I heard Shige was charging $300 an hour.
There are good, bad and great tebori artists all over Japan. That’s obviously where it’s from.
Check out Horikyo as well. He’s really old school.
http://horiyoshi3tattoo.com/contacts/ That’s how you can get in touch with H3
That’s awesome man. I don’t know if you’re the same guy who asked if there were any tebori artists in the UK, but H3’s old apprentice lives in London.
While you’re in Japan, research artists, obviously that’s the best place to find one. Have a great time and don’t forget to show us some pictures of your work!
Not a problem.
I’d say it would probably take a couple of years. But I’ve never dealt with someone who is as famous and sought after as H3 so it might take even longer. I don’t want to give you anything set in stone since I’m not an artist.
I also don’t have confirmation of this but I read somewhere a few months ago that he might stop taking new clients for full body suits. But I’m not positive.
I’d say get the ball rolling by contacting him through his website
Where do you live? There are some other truly great Japanese tattoo artists out there.
Hey, glad you love the blog, thanks for the question.
So that question is hard to answer. It all depends on how intricate the designs you and your artist pick, how much money you have, how big/tall you are and how often you went for sittings.
Going every month or two it could still take years if you get full sleeves and your legs done.
It’s worth it though!
The blog has 3,985 followers. I’m the third admin of the blog, so I did none of the hard work.
As a matter of fact, a pupil of Horiyoshi III lives and tattoos in London. His name is Alex Reinke or Horikitsune. The only way to get a better traditional Japanese tattoo would be to go to Japan and get tattooed by Horiyoshi III.
