He said that cherry blossoms are best used as like a frame for a centerpiece. And he wanted to put "a badass Japanese sword" there but I was like fuck no. So he asked what other Japanese imagery I might like and I said I'd think about it. Any thoughts?

Are you telling me you got the tattoo BEFORE deciding what you wanted there?

Well, looks like something long and thin would go there. Aside from a sword, the other thing I can think of is a Japanese dragon; one of those serpentine ones.

Okay, coming from someone who has studied and lived in Japan, I will tell you what not to get:

(Any) Words [No matter what you do]

Anything else is okay, but you'll look like a super gaijin.

So, my recommendation? Get a bonsai tree. Look up the different kinds, and then decide.

Okay, having looked at the picture, and it looking like a mix between a bonsai and sakura, I would say get a manekineko (cat with its arm up), a good luck racoon with large testicles, an obon (Japanese lantern), a giant salamander, or an Omamori (Japanese talisman with the prayer usually written on the front of its bag). Oh, or maybe a koi fish.

What do you think?

You'll still look silly, but hey, why the fuck not?

Those look a little dark and scary, and I'm hoping for something a little more feminine maybe.

>Are you telling me you got the tattoo BEFORE deciding what you wanted there
Yeah! Actually when I went in I had no idea I was going to get a full sleeve done, but he got to work and that's what ended up happening. I've found that it's best to give the artists as much creative freedom as possible, if you want their better work. And if nothing else seems to work there in okay with leaving it as negative space lol. It's really pretty and I can't wait until the rest is done and it's all colored in.

>>17797707
Ooh that's a neat idea! Thank you :)

>>17797893
A bonsai tree with a cherry blossom tree? Guess it could look okay but idk.

>>17797903
Why would it look silly? So far I think it looks amazing :)

The talisman is a good idea. Think I'll read more about them but it's a very good idea. Ranks up there with flowy dragon in coolness. Thanks!

> it's best to give the artists as much creative freedom as possible
That's true, but you give them that freedom on the sketches. The fact you've already gotten it done means you've already restricted everything that could be put there and how it could be put there. If you knew what was going to go there beforehand the artist would be able to more appropriately style the tattoo around it.

You should rethink your life choices.

How about a river/creek with a Japanese fishy (coi?) splish-splashing about.

>>17797222
Are you japanese? and why didn't you go over this with your artist beforhand?
>>
>>17797222
how about a giant penis because you're a massive faggot?
>>
>>17798769
Man that's some of the most retarded reasoning to end up with gay cherry blossoms as a sleeve I've ever heard of


You know there's a reason you have a tattoo artist draw out what he's going to do and go over it with you inch by inch right???

Christ alive enjoy people thinking you're gay or a massive poser if you aren't Asian

50 year old me sounds like an uptight loser. fuck that bitch; she's not my mom

>>17798886
girl

>>17798913
well like i said before. if nothing decent comes to mind then i'll just leave it as negative space. tattoo already looks badass so who cares?

and he did it all freehand on my skin. no sketching first, was really impressive.

>>17799085
no thanks. idk why so many people are telling me it was a mistake. it's not like tattoos are permanent or anything anyway so...

>>17799761
pretty good idea :)

>>17799765
no i'm white hispanic. and i didn't even realize he'd left this space until he finished for the session and it was time to go. it looked like a full sleeve to me as i was getting it.

>>17799795
gay cherry blossoms? i wanted them for a reason lol. one of my other tattoos has cherry blossoms too, though in a completely different style. different artist too

>>17799812
Fucking homo bro and you got the faggy jesus quote in female script to go with it
