Kanji tattoo design 6

Title: Kaku-Shin/核心/Hard-Core
Alternative title: Love Kills
Size: A3

Slowly, I’m diverging from the initial attempts of these Kanji tattoo designs. Instead of putting myself into a cliche image or what people tend to expect what is “oriental”, I choosed to play a little bit with the words and the drawing  itself.

Even a monkey can imitate a style. But, it takes millions to hold back into the real nuances of a specific culture and language. What follows from that, shouldn’t be superficial: it’s the feeling. That one, can only be reached by the “core”: conviction.
