I have been really digging kitsune (Japanese foxes/mythical foxes with up to nine tails that shapeshift and make mischief) lately. I am thinking of getting one myself and in general think they are a beautiful subject for tattoos, but I am having trouble finding great examples of them! (Warning: if you google "kitsune" you get a lot of weird furry shit. I do not recommend it.) I know they must be out there, so please post awesome examples of kitsune tattoos and art that you have come across here.

Thus far I really love, of course, the backpiece that Shige did on Uncle Allan:

Ask @hgiles to show you the one Brian Bruno blasted on his ribs. You will be impressed.

Unfortunately, I don't have a good picture of it. It's a hard area to photograph myself. Jeff Cribb did some mums around it -- maybe that pic is out there somewhere...

Thought it might be appropriate to break my lurker status by joining this thread. Here's my in-progress kitsune by Claudia De Sabe at Jolie Rouge, London.

Didn't want to outright swipe the photo but here's a link to it on her facebook page

I could be wrong, but I don't think anyone would consider you "swiping" the photo if it's of artwork done on your body.

Thanks for the kind words, here's an updated pic, finished it off yesterday. It was an absolute pleasure to be tattooed by Claudia, and Jolie Rouge is a great shop full of the most awesome people. Hope to return for some more work from her at some point in the future.

    • I just have to keep reminding myself it's unfinished and it's supposed to look bad before it looks good haha. My brain has a hard time wrapping itself around that, and it's in such a noticeable place that I'm always catching it with my eyes. Definitely something to get used to. 
    • Did you look around the forum at other threads relating to this topic before posting? It’s far too early to know. Let it heal. No sense in stressing about something you can’t do anything about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • I just got this tattoo a day ago and I noticed some lines getting blurry and I'm not sure if this could be a blowout. This is my first tattoo. It's probably too early to know but it's stressing me out and I would like thoughts on this. Any idea?
