For Japanese, Chris Crooks, Matt Hart and Billy Hay are the first names that spring to mind.

These 2 were high on the list. My brother has a fair bit of work from Stewart. Alex's prices could be a sticking point

I'm bias as I'm having work there but I think for trad the girls at nine tails are worth considering.

Mie back piece

Kanae back piece

I kind of like the fact that they are actually from Japan

I think Alex work is incredible but a full back piece is going to cost!

That is Badass. Glad to see you doing your homework I am sure you will will find a great artist and have a badass Dragon.
Makes a difference when you put the time in to get who you want to do your work and know that they can do a great job

His work is incredible. A couple of flights a year for appointments is fairly reasonable. Does he have set rates? Has anyone had work from him?

This could also open up Europe for other artists....
