HI, have just discovered this amazing site, which I am delighted to now be a member of.

I'm particularly interested in good quality Japanese style tattoos and have a half sleeve shoulder chest panel by the late great Jason Saga, which won first prize in the Best Traditional Category of the Miami NTA convention. We were planning to complete to full sleeve and start the other side, then hopefully full back but he sadly died and I have been stuck ever since. Am hoping to find inspiration on here to continue my plan towards a full Japanese body suit. Wish me luck!

Welcome! I was a huge fan of Jasons work, and was very sad to hear of his passing. I used to work with an artist who had both sleeves done by him, her arms were absolutely beautiful. Do you have any other ideas for artists currently? I am sure we could point you towards a huge amount of Japanese tattooing talent if you need help!!

Hi and thanks for your interest; who do you consider the best traditional japanese style artist currently working in London?

Horikitsune does great work, although I noticed some of his recent pieces were drifting away from traditional style. I'll have to check through his portfolio again.

The guy that does my work Nico has quite a similar style to Jason, if you wanted to continue along that road. He is not far from London. If that doesn't do it for you then I also really like Kanae at nine tails tattoo along with what everyone else has already mentioned.

Thank you all so much for your advice; I have only just noticed all the replies to this thread, sorry, put it down to my inexperience with this site.

But I will investigate all the great artists you mention, and keep you posted on developments.

Mark ;)

ps Anyone planning to go to the Brighton convention over the weekend 15/16 Feb?
