Taku Does Amazing Work
Anyone interested in TRADITIONAL JAPANESE TATTOOS should drop in and sit down with Taku. He's one of the top young, up-and-coming tattoo artists in LA. He's from Japan, has been tattooed extensively by Horiyoshi III (the world renowned master of the craft), and is extremely creative. Taku did a half sleeve on my right arm and a 3/4 sleeve on my left arm, and his work is impeccable: clean and even lines, extremely fine attention to detail, stunning color and shading. Two years after the work was completed, I'm approached by people on a regular basis asking me who did my tattoos. After sitting with him for over 12 sessions of at least 4 hours apiece, I can say that Taku is patient, friendly, and humble. Book him while you can, he's on his way to being a star, his work holds its own next to even masters like CHRIS GARVER and CLAY DECKER (his mentors). While I personally haven't had any work done by True's other artists, I can say that the custom pieces I've seen them doing during my time in the shop is top notch. The shop is clean, well-lit, and comfortable.
