    this is my friends shop in norwalk, he does a lot of asian themed tats.

    Right now Horiryu is guest spotting at his shop and if you google him you will find that he is famous for anything asian. He is from japan, barely speaks english and won 93 best of show awards last year alone.

    definitely recommend at least checking out the shop and letting them know what you are interested in getting.

    horiryu will be there until sept.

    who gives a shit if other people used it, it's about the personal meaning behind your own symbols instead of saying "well i won't get this cause a lot of people have it," that's fucking stupid

    i know, i'm just sayin you shouldn't dismiss every single tat that has a common image in it as stupid and bandwagon-ish until you ask the person why it's there in the first place

    Get it translated then take it into a shop. Good luck on finding someone that can write kanji that works in a shop.
