Full Back Piece Experience Thread

Recommended Posts

man, my ass and thighs don't hurt nearly at all, even though everyone else says they're the worst.

my back is what kills!

yeah, that's the sense of loss at not being fully able to witness our back(sides)!

Maybe you have a mutant power!! Wolverine butt.

Either that or you're working for Jondix and Chad Koeplinger, trying to get me to extend my back piece.

I know I have not posted in a while, apologies everyone. Well, we are moving along. It usually feels from uncomfortable to terrible to absolutely IAMGOINGTODIEHERE.

I know it will be worth it. It could always have been worse, I know; at least the shading is tebori. Anyway, after finishing all of the background, we are now methodically creeping up towards the lower back from the back of the right thigh with the colour on the tennyo's kimono and it is ... unpleasant.

Oh and (probably thankfully) I am absolutely not continuing to add to this to the munewari soshinbori coverage level I joked about earlier. There is no way in hell that I could deal with the pain around all the tender bits in front judging by what I have felt on my back.

I need to post some progress photos...

I'm completely in the same boat. No way in hell can I do a munewari, much as I'd love to!

Here's a rubbish photo I took session before last one when had begun adding the patterns on her kimono...

Have been adding the red on her kimono on the back of my right thigh since.

This Instagram post of Horifuji's I linked below shows the whole thing (but older photo than the one I posted above)

I have some interesting questions to contribute to this that I will post as soon as I get my post count up. I have had a lot of work done in the system with "sut" ink that came out as a lightish / darkish grey shades. I recently had a freeworld tattoo done in black as a cover up, it's solid black, used to cover up one of my first tattoos. Honestly, from my perspective, it's too much black for me and stands out. So I will be posting some great questions here regarding this. I've spoken with some artist that mentioned mixing in some grey wash and opaque grey colors with the black so the black doesn't stand out so much, now I have to wait for my post count to get up, so I can ask questions regarding it, but it may be something for you to search up for the time being.

Hey guys,

Reviving the full back piece experience thread.

So I had never been tattooed before and last year I decided to dive in for my first one and begin my traditional Japanese full back, (cause if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly right 😂) The tattooer is Matt Collins at Unseen in Adelaide. I know I don’t have anything to compare it to, but having read this thread I know what you all say about full backs is 100% true, it is damn hard work.

We’ve just completed all of the background and that last session shading in rocks over the tailbone was definitely brutal. About 20 ish hours in I think. I love the finished product though, and can’t wait to see the cranes and leaves once we get into those, mostly black and grey with some red on leaves and cranes heads, haven’t decided on the omamori design yet.

That's super! Great contrast. 

Love the commitment, too. 

Thanks mate.
It is a mind game to push through some of the really hard spots (back of ribs, base of spine etc) but the pay off is worth it in the end.
I reckon I should take out shares in second skin, the amount we’ve used in healing this 😂 I always do a first layer straight away, then within 24 hours after the initial plasma gunk leaks I take off the second skin, wash with antibacterial soap then dry and put on another second skin and leave it for about 4 days ish. Always had nice healing doing it that way.

Thanks! 

It's definitely something to feel proud of, but some days you do just wanna go home 😂 other sessions are more manageable. I think you pretty much have to mentally hear that death march in your head when you walk in, and expect it to be the worst pain ever and then it wont be so bad. You can't ever approach a session feeling good about it, cause you will get your arse handed to you ha ha.

Never done anything that big, but what I have has left me with no distinct memories of the pain - even a few hours later. I remember it hurt, but not how it hurt. That helps. That yours looks so freaking awesome should dull any pain that it caused you!
