The Japanese Free Hand Master: Gakkin

Gazing at the tattoo work of Japan’s Gakkin makes me want to save all the money I have and buy a plane ticket to Japan, like NOW! His work is as heavy as a Corrupted song in tattoo form. Out of his dark lines so much light shines through only to capitivate those who are looking at his work which is all done free hand! I’m so happy that Gakkin dropped out of fashion school to pursue his real passion: tattooing. Now it’s time for you to see the work of a Black & White Japanese master! I nothing but respect for this human as an artist straight up!

I’m no fan of tattoos in general, but I must admit the beauty of this work. Stunning.
