Peter had always wanted a Japanese-style tattoo, but he knew he couldn’t trust just any tattoo artist with his dream design. After months of research, he finally found the perfect tattooist who specialised in Japanese tattoos. The problem? They were located in Japan. Peter pooled his savings to book an airfare, and then scheduled an appointment with the tattooist, eager to discuss his design and make his dream a reality.
After a few online consultations, Peter began to realise that his vision for the tattoo was more specific than he initially thought. He was glad he had chosen the artist in Tokyo, since his tattoo would have been difficult for someone who didn’t specialise in Japanese tattoos. It turns out that the artist he had chosen was actually the best tattooist Brisbane had ever seen before he decided to move to Japan. The artist was excited to not only tattoo Peter, but also to show a fellow Australian around the city he now called home. Upon arriving in Tokyo, Peter was struck by the beauty and chaos of the city. He navigated the crowded streets until he found the tattoo studio he had chosen.
As he entered, he was greeted by the Japanese tattooist. Brisbane studios weren’t the same without him, although he employed many other artists who were very talented in other tattoo areas. Peter’s dream design was a dragon, weaving its way up his arm in vibrant colours and intricate details. The Japanese tattooist took Peter’s vision and transformed it into a stunning work of art. Peter stayed in Tokyo for several weeks, enjoying his time exploring the city and learning all he could about Japanese culture. Finally, after multiple sessions, the tattoo was complete. Peter looked down at his arm, now adorned with a masterpiece. He knew that it was more than just a tattoo – it was a symbol of his journey, his commitment to his dream, and the beauty of Japanese art.
