Traditional Japanese Sleeve
Traditional Japanese Sleeve Tattoo showcasing Botan Flowers or Peony Flowers. Full Sleeve and Chest piece. It’s also a small cover up, but its hard to find an old tattoo.
Lifetime projects like this takes a lot of energy and time, its painful and takes a lot of care in-between the sessions. It might take several months or even more, depending how often sessions are made.
Botan in Japanese culture
Botan garnered their reputation as the king of the flowers because they were grown in the gardens of imperial palaces throughout China. Because of their association with royalty, they evoke themes such as good fortune, wealth, and nobility.
