Finally there is a real Horimatsu website, much due to the dilligent efforts of my dear friend Alex Kofuu Reinke Horikitsune. Please go to www.horimatsu.com. This blog has been added to the website and all new posts will be done there.
You are very welcome.
Thimo from Germany came for a visit in order to start a new Nagasode irezumi tattoo. After three sessions we left it like this. Hopefully it will be concluded before the end of this upcoming summer.
