Who is the absolute best at Japanese/Neo Japanese in San Fran? I'm planning a trip up there some time next year and wanted to get some world class work done. Price and appointment wait time aren't issues.

I've been looking at Skull and Sword, Grime and Yutaro in particular. Also been looking at guys from Seventh Son. I know Luke is a MMA fighter/Ralph GJJ guy, so thats pretty dope.

Anyone have recommendations, experiences, actuall tattoo work to post...hook me up.

best is a relative term.

but yes, grime would be near if not the top of my list.

infact he is working on my leg, though it's not japanese at all.

tim lehi at black heart is also bad ass.

yutaro is more traditional especially when side by side with grime.

i wonder what grimes wait is, i waited near two years just to start my piece

Thanks rare.

When I say best, I mean jaw dropping world class art.

To be completely honest I want something along the lines of what Shige does. But because I'm going to San Fran and I don't foresee myself going to Japan any time soon I figured I'd check some guys out over there.

What kind of work you got going on your leg?

shige is amazing, but ive seen his stuff in real life, the lay outs are out of this world, the tattoos are great, but not as devestating as the pictures with the contrast pumped a little.

grime's wait is a year and a half. good luck with marcus pacheco, who many consider one of the greatest color tattoo artist ever, he is super low key, call skull and sword they have the details on how to get to him, private studio in oakland

check out mike roper, he is in arizona, jaw dropping, i think he is better than shige btw.
