Just gonna straight up ask. Is it acceptable for a big white guy to get Japanese/Chinese style tattoos? Such as full Sleeves and across the upper back etc.

Its super common, just make sure not to get some heat bag shit that says you are a high ranking yakuza member lol.
Japanese tattoos are absolutely classic forms of art but many have significant cultural meaning. I'd say do some research about some of the ideas you are interested in and respect that meaning and its cool.

That's what I was worried about. I absolutely love the art (hannya mask anyone) but I know a lot of people still think yakuza style tattoos are somewhat taboo, which is understandable. If I can get away with it, and do the prerequisite studying I'd love to finally get some ink

Totally normal. I have a Dragon/Phoenix back piece in full color and it "could" be considered Japanese/Chinese style I suppose. My artist does a lot of that style and he's a white dude. Like westopher said, it's a style of art.

Personally I would stay away from characters in a language you do not speak or understand. I've seen many peeps with some lettering tattoos only to find out years later that it means something completely different than what they originally thought. What a burn!

I'm a white guy with a dragon on half my back and a barong on my ribs(the protective spirit from Bali, not the pinoy shirt). As long as your are getting the tattoo for you, who cares what others think. Be careful about characters though a fried of mine wanted his name in Japanese and ended up with scab(his name is Mark)

if i ever get stupid and start on my legs i've toyed with the idea of having somone like Cohen or kind of a long shot in Horiyu coming up with Japanese style bears, like take a modern approach on two big grizzly's or somthing. Not too many bears seemingly associated with the Japanese style

Not too sure how hori would take that idea to be honest. He does not seem to open to straying away from the traditional irezumi style. Maybe just shoot the shop an email though, maybe he can make some sort of grizzly foo dog hybrid haha

Can anybody recommend a cheap, quality artist that can do something small, roughly the size of a loonie?

Looking into getting a scales of justice on my inner wrist. Tattoos are addicting

Again, looking for the cheapest option (whilst maintaining quality) since the piece is so small

Went in for my first session with Horiryu today for my full sleeve. First off, I didn't get to see a sketch until I walked into his studio this morning. I went into the consultation with just a few simple requests: I want hannya, go nuts on the details, and i LOVE colours. I basically gave him free rein on my tattoo.

No regrets. He did one hell of a job designing this piece for me. Placement of my 3 hannya are spot on. He even hid a little snake on my forearm. I think it was a bit of a challenge for him to draw up something for me since i'm so thin. his exact words were, "oh! chopstick arm!" I'm seriously so damn happy with my sleeve.

Also, I discovered the back and inside of my arm are very ticklish. I giggled like a damn idiot until he got to my collar bone. Elbow was fine, everything was fine, and then arm pit area and collar bone nearly made me wince. Those areas ain't so fun.
