“To get a full-body tattoo takes years of suffering, and that requires maturing as a human, learning to experience and overcome pain. It is as if with each piercing of the needle, they become stronger and more complete.” – Horiyoshi III
One of my mentor’s favorite tattooists, he became in instant idol when I was introduced to his work. Horiyoshi III is a hailed as one of the best traditional horishis and is an icon to us all.
