Raijin (雷神, raijin) is a god of thunder[1] and lightning in Japanese mythology. His name is derived from the Japanese words rai (雷, meaning thunder) and shin (神, god). He is typically depicted as a demon beating drums to create thunder, usually with the symbol tomoe drawn on the drums.

straight from WiKi...there his drums but ive seen people with different variations of this tattoo but i went with the traditional..and its common to have raijin and fujin opposite of each other in battle so i went with the traditional as well

Japanese art has meaning behind all the art, such as a koi that u call "cliche" has meaning of luck and strength.. So u really cant suggest a japanese piece unless u have a meaning in mind that u want the sleeve to symbolize... Going for a japanese sleeve, u will have to do some research on what each tattoo symbolizes


I tried doing some research couldnt seem to find much any sites you recommend? I was thinking of picking up The Japanese Tattoo by Sandi Fellman do you think it would be any help?
Apr 03, 2010 @ 14:26
^ i own that book, its mostly just pictures... U should be able to find some good info if u type japanese tattoo meanings in google.. I know tattoojoy gives u a quick overview of some stuff like dragons, koi, etc.. But there is another site i always forget it, ill try to find it and post it.. Also u can always go to tattoos shops who have artists who specialize in the art and they will have tons of books..

Sketched this up the other day:



Still have refining to do on it, ink it, and get colors for it. Trying to get a more traditional look... And I gotta figure out where to put it.

If anyone knows of good artists in Central Florida, let me get some info on them. I know some, but not many who impress me with their traditional work, and word of mouth is sorta limited around here.

FUCK MY NIGGER DAD

How long until after I get my tat can I start working out again?

I know it says to wash and put ointment on it for 3 weeks and avoid soaking it for 4 weeks in pools, baths, oceans etc. The paper they gave me doesn't say anything about working out though.
Apr 04, 2010 @ 18:41
you should be fine to workout after a week or so, you just shouldn't soak it in water

u dont need ointment for 3 weeks.. 5-7 days with 3 times a day is plenty especially for a tattoo your size.. And then after the 5-7 days, just use non scented lotion throughout the day so it doesnt dry out.. After 2 weeks u should be good to work again, just be sure to wash really good afterwards..

you should wait atleast a week minimum...put aquaphor for 4 days and then on the
5th day start with lubriderm constantly for atleast 1 week after the 1st 4 days

Oh...well i mean they gave me their own ointment that they make and said 3 weeks, 2 times a day

But yeah it's been 1 week so far, I guess I'll start working out again next week.

(If I can confirm being booked with Shige/tomo. Last I heard shige was 3 years booked.)
So I'm starting to decide on what I would get. So far this is all just ideas.

Back piece Would be a samurai killing an oni referenced from the saint Michael pic I posted earlier. And then I would have half sleeves (including chest) of Raijin and Fujin battling. Raijin on the right, Fujin on the left.

Under the Raijin side I want Charectors for Hisshou, Hissatsu, and more( ideas? ) under it like This, except more of a brush stroked look like the aum posted earlier:



The Fujin Side will have more a "wavy/windy" look to it like this (the space left empty, it would be coming from his bag):


Somewhere in all the work I want a cracked skull to be hidden. For my best friend that died.
Example of it being hidden: (look below the Koi)


and cracked:


I'm also thinking about getting an oni in coverings. don't know how to explain it, but this:


so thats what I got so far. What do you guys think? too much? and what kinda filler stuff?
Apr 05, 2010 @ 16:55
lol @ getting back piece and sleeve my shige.

naked pimp - i was not looking for designs. i was looking for something that would go along with a Phoenix

As of last may, u had to register to get a piece done by Shige.. He was no longer taking appointment because of how many people were booking with him.. If u go on to yellow blaze, it tells u to register and its limited right now.. Most likely u wont get a spot but u should try.. Only thing is, he gives u a certain date and thats it, so u have to be there on that date.. I believe Tomo is the same way...

Shoot, yup your right. Its all good though cause Im in no rush. more time just means more money, and more time to think about what I want.

19, Nope.

I know, I know. I'm setting a high goal. Possibly unrealistic.
