Tenkara Tattoo 5: Chris Fahrenbruch

Tattoos are permanent and, as it’s become obvious, so is the passion anglers feel for tenkara.

Today we learned of the 5th person to get a tenkara tattoo, Chris Fahrenbruch. Chris says, ” [It] just felt it was appropriate considering I fish Tenkara. And while not completely into the Japanese culture I do have a respect for it (I own a real Samurai sword and entire Samurai armor set) and lived in Okinawa for 2 years. Got it on the right arm beings I’m right handed and hold my Tenkara rod with the right hand. I feel like it will increase my Tenkara “Zen Level” up a few notches Besides that, Tenkara just fits with the way I have always viewed fly fishing. Sure it’s not always appropriate for some of the conditions I fish in, but overall it just feels right.”

Here’s a gallery of the other tattoos done so far:

    I am about to have another kebari added. My own pattern. Daniel, during my trip, I was not bothered at the Onsen by having tattoos. Just a head’s up.
