Being tattooed by tebori, how long would you say the process of getting a full back tattoo would take?I am not entirely familiar with Japanese Tattooing, but is the black background necessary? I'm dying to get a tattoo of Kajiwara Genda Kagesue on my back, but I'm I only want the figure (plus the falling blossums as a back ground).Image of the Kuniyoshi print can be found here:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fd/Kajiwara_Genda_Kagesue_for_Umegae.jpg/269px-Kajiwara_Genda_Kagesue_for_Umegae.jpg
My back took about 80 hours to complete, spread over 2 years. The black background is not required, I've seen plenty of back pieces without it.
