Yakuza bodypaint - closeup by yayacosplay Yakuza bodypaint - closeup by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

Close up of the dragon, painted by Nick Wolfe. The kanji in the golden sphere is "dragon" of course.
I was recently painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe [link] We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before now. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

interesting. If the dragon painting was in your back, I was going to say that it would be a cosplay tattoo for Saint Seiya Dragon Saint, Shiryu. I say this because of the right hand of the dragon, that is supposed to point at his heart.

Just saying. The painting work is really wonderful. Kudos for all the hard work.

Totally honest? The level of skill for that body paint makes it look like an actual tattoo. Very impressive work on the artists end.
