The Boneless One!

Pictured here is Brian's Tattoo of Ebisu- one of the Seven Gods of Luck. He resides over Fishermen, Workers, and Children, and his origin story is pretty interesting. According to Eastern Myth, Ebisu was born with no skeleton due to some grave violation his Mother committed during the Marriage Ritual. He was cast into the sea on a boat, washed ashore, and somehow overcame his disfigurements by mysteriously growing a skeleton and learning to walk again. He remained deaf and slightly lame, but is known for his pleasant disposition in spite of his hardships. Thanks, Brian, for yet another opportunity to learn about and tattoo a great piece of Japanese Mythos!
