We were luckily informed by our studio mates down at Two Tides Tattoo, that they will be bringing in a traditional tattoo artist from Japan for two weeks. Of course, we found this to be a great opportunity to document a bit of his art and work process. 

This tattoo form is called Tebori and is literally the act of carving on skin. To have a traditional Tebori artist was a rare sight to behold, especially in Vancouver. 

This is what we captured.
