Striking Japanese Sleeve Tattoos by Rhys Gordon

You'll never want to wear long-sleeved shirts again.

When considering getting a sleeve it's important to find just the right artist. If you're after traditional Japanese tattooing, Rhys Gordon is one of the best artists to see in Australia. His respect and knowledge of Japanese tattoo culture and mythology reflects in his work. 

The usual dragons and koi fish are here, in vibrant color and beautiful black and grey, along with the bold backgrounds which tie all the tattoo elements together. 

Forget the gun show, these clients will be proudly showing off their striking Japanese sleeves by Rhys Gordon.
