BLACK AND GREY DRAGON BACKPIECE DONE

THIS BALCK AND GREY DRAGON BACKPIECE WAS DONE IN FOUR SITTING IN MY NEW SHOP JUSTGOODTATTOOS EINDHOVEN.AFTER 30 YEARS TATTOOING I UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEED FOR ORIGINALITY IS GREATER THAN EVER.THE BACKGROUND OR MIKIRI ON THIS PIECE WAS BASED ON A VERY OLD STYLE REMMINISECENT OF KUNYIOSHI OR KWANABE KYOSAI,WOODBLOCK ARTISTS FROM  THE EDO PERIOD IN JAPAN,THE SWIRLS ARE LOOSE AND COME FROM A FIELD OF BLACK..THE DRAGON IS MOVING EMOTIVE AND THE CLAWS CHIN EYES ETC ARE ALL ORINGINAL.THE TATTOOS OF TODAY IN THIS STYLE HAVE BLEACHED OF POWER.THEY ARE JUST FURTHER REPLICATIONS AND IMITATIONS OF THE TRENDS OF REPETITION..TRADITION AND A LINEAGE OF STYLE IS VERY IMPORTANT,HOWEVER THE ORIGINAL IDEA OF POWER AND ORIGINALITY MUST NOT BE LOST.MANY TATTOOERS NOW LOOK AT THE INTERNET AND JUST COPY THE ACCEPTED WAY.THEY AND THE CUSTOMERS WHO ALL SEEK THE SAME PIECE FLATTEN THE ORIGINAL POWER AND EXPRESSION FORM THE IMAGES BY SEEKING TO JUST DO THE SAME THING.KUNYIOSHI AND YOSHITOSHI AND ALL THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS HAD THEIR OWN STYLE AND POWER.THE 2000 COI SLEEVES DONE EVERY MONTH IN EXACTLY THE SAME STYLE BECOME LIKE SNEAKERS OR SUNGLASSES.AN ACCESORY OF MODERN STYLE.IF YOU REMMEBER DISCO STYLE ,THEN PICTURE CHOOSING TO LOCK INTO THAT STYLE FOREVER.NOW IT WOULD NOT BE RELEVANT.THE WAY CLIENTS AND TATTOOERS WORK TODAY THEY ARE ASSUMING THE STYLE OF TODAY SHOULD GOVERN WHAT YOU GET TATTOOED AND HOW.TATTOOING IS A LIFETIME COMMITMENT AND IS ABOUT ORIGINAL EXPRESSION.YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE STYLE AND THEN CAREFULLY SEEK TO MAKE YOUR TATTOO POWERFUL AND TIMELESS AND ABOVE ALL ORIGINAL..TATTOOS ARE NOT A JACKET FROM  TODAYS STYLE TO BE BOUGHT AT THE STORE AND WORN..THEY ARE PERSONAL TALISMANS OF POWER AND EXPRESSION OF YOUR OWN PERSONAL SPIRIT..I ALWAYS TRY TO USE THE TRADITIONS OF TATTOO BUT LOOK DEEPER THAN THE ACCEPTANCE OF TODAYS TRENDS.I TRY TO LOOK FOR THE POWER AND ORIGINALITY,I INFUSE THEM WITH MY OWN STYLE.THINK ABOUT YOUR TATTOOS,THEY ARE FOR LIFE..LOOK DEEPER,LOOK FOR MORE INVENTIVE ARTISTS..IF YOU VISIT MY SHOP JUSTGOODTATTOOS IN EINDHOVEN,I CAN HELP YOU SEARCH DEEPER TO CREATE SOMETHING ORIGINAL,,SOMETHING POWERFULL..NOT JUST THE SAME DRAGON SLEEVE EVERYONE GETS ..THERE ARE SOME ARTISTS WHO JUST SELL THE SAME THING TRACED NOT EVEN DRAWN AND PEOPLE ARE GETTING VIRTUALLY THE SAME TATTOO AS THE GUY BEFORE AS IF THEY WERE BUYING A PAIR OF PANTS..TATTOO IS ABOUT PERSONAL EXPRESSION,ABOUT MAGIC...BREAK THE MOLD DARE TO BE DIFFERENT,,THATS THE IDEA BEHIND IT..THANKS FOR READING  HOPE I HAVE CHALLENGED YOUR IDEAS A BIT  MARCUS KUHN  GYPSY GENTLEMAN
