Do you have someone that is your whole world? Would you like to express this simply and elegantly? This design is an ancient and honored expression of one's devotion. Whether it be your soulmate, your child or a parent this design makes a simple and elegant declaration that this one person is your whole life.
The main character is a design based on Life (inochi) with an extended line to allow room for a person's name. The name is translated as a phonetic translation to katakana which is the standard way names are rendered in Japanese.
This offering is for a completely custom design that is just for you. You will be working directly with Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase to create a unique design that is just for you.
We do this by emailing you samples that are all hand-lettered by Master Takase and then scanned and converted to Adobe PDF format so they will print-out exactly as designed by Master Takase.
We start by showing several initial hand-brushed designs that are each carefully documented and explained. We would then get your feedback and make changes. And we would do this until the design is just right. When it is perfect for you, we would then create a final design that contains the artwork and the line art. You would then just print this out and take it to your tattoo artist to have it inked.
Takase Studios has both native English and native Japanese speaking translators so you know the translation will be absolutely correct. Further, we provide you with dictionary references and work with you until you are completely satisfied with the design.
The final design is delivered digitally in Adobe PDF format. This way you can be sure that the final design will print out just as Master Takase designed it. This is a single use design and while the design may easily be resized the design may not be edited. Along with the high-resolution scan of Master Takase's hand-lettered design, we also include the line art that your tattoo artist will need to properly ink the design.
We also now offer matching artwork both unframed and framed hand-brushed by Master Takase.
