Cross-Cultural Fusion in the Art of Japanese Tattooing
Tattoo by Kahlil Rintye

This photograph (click to enlarge) shows the work of tattoo artist Kahlil Rintye, who is based in San Francisco, CA. Rintye created his own unique designs by working around two previous tattoos the client already had on his chest — a child's portrait and the San Francisco Giants' logo. Done in traditional Japanese style, this chest piece also contains non-traditional imagery.
