Hybrid Hannya Tatt’s 5

まだまだ行きまっせー。良い感じで進んでるんで、今年中には仕上がるか⁉️頑張ろう➖

Hybrid Hannya Tatt’s 4

ca. Drei bis vier Stunden pro jeder Sitzung, wie immer 💪

I must/need write something for each post. Looking for inspiration on tattoo memes pages on IG doesn’t help that much. That said, let’s watch Scott Ian’s spoken words. Or should I stick to Joey DeMaio’s? Fuck the world, hail and kill⚔️

Well, screw it. One more photo of this back piece. You might be fed up, but I’m loving doing and posting it as much as I make you fed up😉 see you next time 👋🏿

2回目のセッション。もう何時間か忘れた!(ダメだね🙅‍♂️)

毎度の事だから、多分(多分)3〜4時間くらい。別に記録を破ろうとしてる訳じゃないんで。お客さんがギブするまでは彫り続けるよ。あんま長くなる場合はこっちがギブするからね(笑

体力、健康。お互様に重要だからね。さて、酒飲んで寝ようと(飲むんかい!ジム行かないんかい!)

Erste Termin, ca. Drei Stunden.

1回目。ラインだけで約三時間くらいかな?普段は一気にラインは引かないけど、今回から変えていこうかなと思ったところ。ケースbyケースなんで、型にとらわれず行こう!

日本ではライブが先週末終わったみたい。上手くいったんかな?気になる…

So, that’s how we started.

The good thing about digital media is being able to show beforehand the overall impression of the customer’s tattoo. Back in the analog era, and by any means I’m saying it with sarcasm or whatsoever, I had to draw the thing life sized and it was difficult to get a whole picture until the customer showed up for the appointment.

Still, lot of hand work and drawing even after applying stencils or what not. My point is: everyone wins when we combine ancient and modern tools.

And yes, we sweat, talk, move and complain. Humans, that’s all

今年の半ばくらいから始めたタトゥー。ありがたい事です。こちらのお客さんはずっと付いてきてくれてます。この時代、どんな小さな地方都市でもタトゥーショップがあるにも関わらず、熱心に通ってくれる事に感謝しかないですよね。途中で色々な事情によりギブする人もいるけど、やっぱこっちとしては仕上げたいです。これはエゴ、自己中的な考えではなく、やっぱ大きな作品はシンドイマラソンみたいなもんだから。一緒にゴールしたいわ。

上下の写真はデジタルで下絵を描いたもの。全体のイメージが伝えやすいし、こっちも色々と修正がスピーディーに出来るから助かります。後は何だろう?自動で彫れる機械が出来るんだろうか?それは勘弁して欲しいけどね(笑

I’ve been uploading less and less tattoo photos in this blog, it seems. In reality, I’m just being “picky” on what to show here, as I want to make sure to wait for healed tattoos and then, re-take the photos.

As you might know, when tattoos are fresh they seem to look really awkward and difficult to read with all the shining, peculiar to a newly finished session.

And obviously, when the customer walks out from the door, I have no guarantee I would be able to see that person ( and consequently, the tattoo ) once again.

I’m very thankful with timing when I can manage to meet them again, and get the right moment ( with right natural light, right weather, etc ) to take the photos of the tattoos.

Some take few years. But, I enjoy the encounter.

It’s a good opportunity to re-visit some ideas and ideals from a quite distant, but at the same time, ageless moment from both sides. Experiences and expressions that will be forever present.
