Background on my piece. It is the Buddhist Deity Aizen Myoo

Aizen converts earthly desires (love/lust) into spiritual awakening, and saves people from the pain that comes with love. Aizen is celebrated in Japanese rites to achieve harmony and friendship, to succeed in one's romantic endeavors, to gain the love and respect of others, and to reach a clear understanding of the Dharma (Buddhist law)

Myo-o is the Japanese term for Sanskrit "Vidyaraja," a group of warlike and wrathful deities known in English as the Mantra Kings, the Wisdom Kings, or the Knowledge Kings. Myo-o statues appear ferocious and menacing, with threatening postures and faces designed to subdue evil and frighten unbelievers into accepting Buddhist law. They represent the wisdom of Buddhism, protect the Buddhist teachings, remove all obstacles to enlightenment, and force evil to surrender. Introduced to Japan in 9th century, the Myo-o were originally Hindu deities that were adopted into Esoteric Buddhism to vanquish blind craving. They serve and protect the various Buddha, especially Dainichi Buddha. In most traditions, they are considered emanations of Dainichi, and represent Dainichi's wrath against evil and ignorance. In Japan, the Myo-o group is worshipped mostly by the Shingon Sect of Esoteric Buddhism. Among the individual Myo-o, the one named Fudo is the most widely venerated in Japan, although Aizen (this page) enjoys a relatively large following as well.

Some beautiful work on everybody!
I'd also love to see some pics of the work on your sleeves if you're so inclined Cobblers.
Shredwin you're a champ 30hrs is going to be rough but worth it, you're back looks amazing. Is it the same artist who did your sleeve work?

Here's a quick pic of my right sleeve and chest done by Jason Kundell at AWR in Portland.

Sadly I found out that Jason Kundells shop literally blew up a few days ago due to a gas leak caused by contruction going on in an adjacent lot. The explosion happened in the morning about an hour before they opened and thankfully
no-one was injured but they lost just about everything including machines, antiques, art, taxidermy, drawings/tracings for clients and much much more.

There is campaign going to help raise some money to help the guys out if anyone feels inclined to do so.

Help AWR

Great shop full of great artists and people.

At a recent family event, an elderly uncle noticed it and offered to give me a 'touching up' but I declined his offer and will have the job done properly I think.


Hmmmmm... quite a conundrum. Myself personally speaking if it were me, I'd be breaking out the oversized Iron Rangers and rocking the full Wallonian look.

Tatoos can be costly and hurt a fair bit so I would also seriously consider a syrup which, if you shop around thriftily, can be picked up in charity shops for under a fiver (plus the cost of a dry clean).

Pics of arms coming right up.

& then there'd be the inevitable scenario in the pub where someone starts mimicking the sound of an air raid siren followed by shouts of "SYRUP ALERT!!!, SYRUP ALERT!!!".
