I returned to Oneshot tattoo Okinawa ,Japan to see my good friend Saturo Koizumi it had been 4 years since my last trip in 2009 it seemed familiar and as if it’d only been a short time I was away,
Seeing Satoru knock out perfect Japanese style tattoos day in day out was enough to have any artist asking questions of their own work, I got to see two sittings on a large scale tiger cover up as well as Many other tattoos in my time at oneshot here’s some detail shots of the said tattoo by Satoru.
