ClassySkating says:

why go to all that trouble for something noone else will ever see? because tattoos are for the wearer. only 18 year old bimbos and douchebags get tattoos just so others will compliment them

Bogdan Blyshchyk says:

they will have health problems from tattooing so many tats on their backs. their kidneys r gonna get fucked up becuz sweat gets trapped nd cant be excreted

pellepaska100500 says:

I believe that when they said that those kinds of tattoos are associated with Yakuza, walking out in the open showing them around without being a member will get you noticed and you will pay the price for imposing.

I believe when that those kind of tattoos are associated with Yakuza, and if you walk out on the open showing them without being a memeber of Yakuza you will quite definitely pay for it.

DrCuddlesPhd says:

It’s just opinions, his appears to differ from yours

you222ber says:

Wouldn’t the Yakuza get really upset if they saw a non Yakuza wearing one of their patterns or symbols?

Boris Grifo says:

i’m not sure that is something to be proud of

Getting a full body tattoo is a TOTAL waste of your body. Thumbs me down.

DevilKeyz says:

well certain cultures have different meanings for tattoos. Most cultures don’t just get tattoos because they look badass

Hervert Galarga says:

If normal tattos hurt. Imagin this ones OmG.

MrLisztomaniac says:

This traditional method gives the artist more freedom in the control of colour and makes the ink last longer as compared to a machine.

TheIGPD says:

Yeah, I am not worried about that and would travel around the world if I really had to.

wonderlandsexxx says:

kikyou88 says:

Oh my… I just hate yakuza…

TheIGPD says:

I would be honored to be tattooed by this man

someone please inform me if you know a way i may contact him

TheIGPD says:

Or you can say its your biography that has significant meaning

sinkbelow says:

I mean CAN’T

sinkbelow says:

Japanese traditional tattoo is not for yakuza.

Japanese fire fighters were getting full-sleve tattoo long time ago.

again it is not the symbol of Yakuza

but it is true that most ppl think like tattoo = Yakuza.
thats my problem coz i can even go to swimming pool in Japan.
I would get kicked out…

sinkbelow says:

that doesn’t cause liver problems no more.

nowadays they(artists) know how to wash and keep the needles clean.

so don’t worry and get full sleve tattoo today 🙂

oOKakarotOo says:

Someone should have a tattoo of a shirt so they don’t have to ware one

kikyou88 says:

People will have this tatoo are NOT normal organization in Japan, like Yakuza.

Pai Akk says:
