I've been considering - and probably will, within in a year or two - getting the Phoenix/Dragon art from the Shenmue 2 menu tatted, probably on chest to the right or left.
I think the image is awesome and means a lot beyond the game itself. I gotta dwell on it a bit longer.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you will find it hard to find a good artist who will put his name to that piece. The simple way of putting it, is that there are size ratios and dimensions that tattoos work in, and an artist will more than likely say thay due to the small gaps etc in that piece, it will not makea good tattoo and that over time the gaps will close and distort the image.
it would need to be done to scale, and basicially, it would need to be huge to retain the detail. Im taking a full back job.
This isnt gospel btw, it will be your money and you can choose what to get, but it would matter to me who exactly is doing my ink.

MK touched upon it, and it is in a sense a bit geeky. But at the end of the day its something i am deeply passionate about, and something thats been a part of me for over a decade.
On that basis, my Shenmue tattoo is absolutely no different to the hundreds of Batman, Superman, Playboy, Betty Boop, Manchester United tatoos etc that i have seen people with. Lots of people this day and age have such related tattoos, and i feel proud to wear it due to how i feel about Shenmue. Its no different to other peoples at its core.
