If you caught the first part of Mister Cartoon's miniature short of him in Japan, you will love the second clip entitled Mister Cartoon Tokyo Tattoo Tour Part 2.

The first part of the short focused on the famed artist's thoughts on the taboo nature of tattoos in Japan and the history of this art form in the land of the rising sun. In Mister Cartoon Tokyo Tattoo Tour Part 2, he talks about his particular style and why the Japanese have become so interested in the L.A. street scene. Audiences also get a close-up look at how Mister Cartoon works from his free-hand tracing method all the way to the finished product. It's a really good glimpse into the gray-scale, L.A.-style inked work that he's known for and his thoughts on the art form in general.
