I just returned after spending one month in Japan. I have been so fortunate, to spend it with the most amazing people of Detroit Diesel Tattoo Works, who have all been greater hosts than I could have ever hoped for. I am so touched by the hospitality and friendship you guys made me feel, and I already miss you greatly. Also a shoutout to our favorite @zak13 of Detroit Meat Choppers, who made sure that we were never thirsty or hungry πŸ”πŸΊπŸ₯ƒ Thank you so much @en_ddtw @micatattoo @mukie_abe, you are so cool - mata ne πŸ’—πŸŒΈ

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of tattooing a man whom I greatly admire. Chef and humanitarian @alexatala, who also just happens to be a fucking great guy πŸ‡§πŸ‡·πŸ’› Alex posted the tattoo on his Instagram, and it stirred up quite the debate. The majority of these some 250 comments, are very judgemental, and questions our view on women, so I felt like sharing my personal point of view.
Contrary to a lot of these spiteful comments, this tattoo for me, does not celebrate the oppression of women, nor any negative form of objectification or victimization. For me, engaging in the art of Kinbaku/Shibari celebrates the sense of empowerment that can be achieved through submission to pleasure.
To me, it is misunderstood to stand up for the 'rights' of the people who engage in this practice, as it is degrading to view it as something abusive. Just because it seems unpleasant to you, does not necessarily mean that it is involuntary, nor wrong. These days, it is done recreationally, and for personal pleasure.
Bondage evolved into the erotic practice that kinbaku is today, in the late 1800's early 1900's, and this tattoo, for me, is an erotic and aesthetically pleasing interpretation; and what many consider to be a very sad look, I just find to accentuate the beauty of, and devotion to, submission.
You can read what you want from this, but the intention is sincere, and comes from an aesthetic and erotic fascination. Thanks for reading this πŸ’œ
