Japanese culture is a huge inspiration in the art of tattoo.
In this culture, samurais get a high place in representation.
Ink his skin with such a pattern provide the body
with an ancestral force who had cross ages.
The kabuto helmet is the most relevant part of the samurai armor.
It represent all the force of the samurai,
it make him impressive and singular on the battlefield.
Tattooing this pattern gives strength and bravery to the body and the soul.
Thanks to Alex for giving his skin and patience and to Brice from Velvet Studio who leave me take part of these three days of tattoo from nude skin to a perfect tattoo.
Made with a Mamiya 6x7 film Camera and Ilford HP5 film.
