By JungShan ''Autumn moon'' Let's go back to samurai series! I made these drawings to one of my tattoo freelance work. My client asked me for a samurai under the maple and holding a sword. I made 3 illustration to her to choose and she chose Autumn moon.
Calligraphy by Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba - "Masakatsu, Agatsu, Katsuhayahi" (正勝吾勝勝速日). Usually translated as "true victory, victory over the self, with the speed of light". O-Sensei said that "Masakatsu" stands for "unyielding", "Agatsu" stands for "without slack" and "Katsuhayahi" stands for "glorious victory".
