A few weeks ago we did some black shading in the koi on my ribs, here's a pic. I have an appointment today, I imagine we'll be adding color. I really want to start outlining the other side, and I'm so close now. Also, check out Inked Inc. This site focusing on tattooed professionals has been around for a while, but it's new to me.

First off, AMAZING work here! I'm very impressed. I called over at Brooklyn Adorned to see when I could schedule a consultation appointment with Shinji, to which I received a reply saying that there's about a year waiting list!!! I'm actually flying up to NYC soon, so hopefully I can squeeze a meeting in. A question for you though, I'm just looking to get about a 5/10th sleeve done ("gobu" is what its called, I think), maybe less. I was curious, based on your experience how much time and money am I looking at? Keep up this awesome work!!!

Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the comment. I'm no expert but..I don't know maybe 13 hrs of work? So like 5-6 2 hour sessions. Not sure what the hourly rate would be, but let's say in the 150-200 per hour range so we're talking a few grand? Shinji is really the one to talk to about these things. I never even bothered to ask such questions, with the amount of work I'm getting done..I'd rather not think about the cost! ;) Good luck to you!
