Have you ever wondered?
Today many people would love to have the sayings by wise and brave Samurai tattooed on their skin, so that the words could settle down in the people's hearts and generate their inner meaning into their life, transforming their personalities into what they desire to become.
A tattoo is believed to have a deep sacral and mysterious meaning, and it would be absurd to treat what will stay with you forever thoughtlessly.

Many people go to "specialists" that do not know the language, the characters, the rules of calligraphy. And then these simpletons become the subject of mocking among those who know the language.
They turn into a walking parody, having meaningless words tattooed on their skin, for example: "kitchen", "I’m an idiot", and so on.

The same goes for Japan-related tattoo sketches. To make a correct sketch, the artist should know the Japanese culture deeply, know the language, and at the same time have professional drawing skills. And one of such artists is Tatiana Basova, the illustrator of the "Samurai" book series by A. R. Basov.

Tatiana Basova can draw any sort of a commission sketch for you.
You will enjoy it!
