My Komuso Tattoo

Here is the tattoo I got today.  Done by Gunnar from No Happy Ending.  I'll post better pics after it heals some.  This is fresh...

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

Harry and Brian, you wouldn't be allowed into many onsens here with that ink.  People get pretty freaked-out by that type of display.  Reminds them too much or organized crime. wink

The thought has crossed my mind, but I like onsen too much.

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

If you want to really make some extra $ and have time then make the suckers pay. It is illegal to refuse entrance to onsen/sento because of race Tattoo etc a couple of people have sued with great success. Most Japanese are ignorant of the fact or not just they try their luck to satisfy customers or just their xenophobia. So I only had trouble once about it and I clearly expressed I wanted to see the manager get proper contacts etc cauz I would sue them especially because they told me it was because it was associated with crime humm ok so you assume I have criminal ties? This is usually the lame excuse they will give and this can be sued for quite easy.

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

The Gishin has some serious bad-ass tatoo'ery.  If he were dressed as a biker in a dark Quebec alley I would be very nervous

Well when I was looking at some of the pics on this thread it looked like a bunch of guys trying to arouse each other. In any case I feel this was a bot of a showoff which I dislike.


Anyway if you want to see my irezumi show me some booty and I will show you mine maybe wink

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

Well even though my tattoos are not Komuso related,they are Japanese and Chinese related.

Here is the first:

http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h93/n7myw/Hiroshige2-small.jpg

Hiroshige's Owl in a pine tree from 1832 and also the poetry with it:

And finally my tea leaf :

I love tattoos!!

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

Those are great tattoos Jim! Are they relatively new? Did you get them done locally?

Re: My Komuso Tattoo

BTW....  I have to have part of the tattoo touched up this week and am seriously considering having the Kanji for Shakuhachi added on my arm as I have a small space just perfect for it! I wonder if I should......
