Rad Neo Traditional Japanese Tattoos by Danny Chen


Japanese tattoos with a modern twist.

Danny Chen works alongside a large group of artists at My Tattoo, which has two shops in California – one in Alhambra, another in Huntington Beach.

Chen’s tattoos could be described as traditional Japanese imagery with a neo traditional feel. There’s a more muted color palette and fine line detailing as opposed to their usual bright colors and bold lines. The usual koi fish and cherry blossoms are here, but Chen also branches out into less common flowers and creatures.

If you enjoy both Japanese and neo traditional tattoos, a piece from Danny Chen is a must!
