The Japanese Hannya Tattoo
The Japanese have had a rich history of art and tattooing. The Hannya mask has been know to bring good luck t the wearer. I used this design to effectively cover up a bad tattoo. Cover up are gaining in popularity as there are so many bad tattoos being done these days.
Joe Kennedy has been tattooing since 1989 and a large part of his business is cover up tattoos and Japanese style tattooing.
Japnese tattoo motifs often show demon and other characters from past legends of history. This demon haunts near the ocean as represented with the waves. So sometime I get to tattoo a demon and other time its an Angel. Never a dull moment around the tattoo shop.
