Traditional Japanese double sleeve dragon and Kirin tattoo
Dragon and Kirin Tattoo- Double Sleeves by Jason Owens

In tattooing, there are few projects that showcase the sheer dedication, skill, and patience required as much as large-scale work. Recently, owner/artist Jason Owens, completed a breathtaking project that stands as a testament to his expertise and the commitment of his client. This double arm sleeve tattoo features intricate chest panels, and each sleeve depicting a powerful subject matter—a dragon on one arm and a Kirin on the other.

Tattoo Subject Matter: Dragon and Kirin

The dragon, a symbol of power, strength, and wisdom, winds its way from the wrist to the shoulder on one arm. Every detail has been meticulously etched to bring this design to life. On the other arm, the Kirin, less commonly known but equally significant, takes form. The Kirin is a creature of serenity and good fortune. It is often depicted with the body of a deer, the tail of an ox, and a dragon-like head. Together, these two creatures create a balance of ferocity and tranquility.

The Artistic Process of the Dragon and Kirin Double Sleeves:

Patience and Precision

Creating such elaborate tattoos is no small feat. It requires a deep understanding of the mythology and symbolism behind the subject matter, as well as an immense amount of technical skill. Each session with Jason Owens was a blend of artistry and endurance.

Hours of Planning and Design

Before the sessions started, countless hours were spent on conceptualizing and designing the tattoos. Jason worked closely with his client to ensure that every detail was perfect. This phase involved several drafts and adjustments, ensuring that the final design would complement the client’s physique and meet their vision.

Tattoo Sessions

Large-scale tattoos such as these require multiple sessions, often spread over several months. Sessions can last 3 to 8 hours, depending on the intricacy of the work and the client’s endurance. Jason Owens and his client undertook numerous sessions, each session building upon the last to gradually bring everything together.

Jason Owens’ work not only highlights his technical skills, but also his ability to connect with his clients. Such a project demands immense dedication from both the precise, creative artist, and the enduring client.

Large-scale tattoos like this double arm sleeves with chest panels created by Jason Owens are a true labor of love. They require an extraordinary amount of time, skill, and commitment. For those considering such a tattoo, it’s essential to understand and appreciate the journey as much as the destination. In the end, you are not just receiving a tattoo; you are embodying a work of art that tells a powerful story.
