1st sitting on this back piece looking forward to getting these lines down to the back of the thighs before we start to colour

This is the year to bring this to an end , wee Scott is a tough and uncomplaining customer we even done a tag team sit on him to speed up this piece , (more bang for your buck)!
The signature bar on the side Is the phonetic translation into kanji .this was chosen for me by Satoru Koizumi San and I’m proud to tattoo it on large scale japanese pieces
