JAPANESE TATTOO, WHERE DRAGONS, TIGERS, KOI CARPS, PEONIES AND MANY OTHER POSSIBLE SYMBOLISM COME  ALIVE ON SKIN..

A meaningful story is told in each tattoo and forms a unique piece of personality on your skin.

For example tattoos that tell the stories of108 heroes of the Suikoden, the adventures of Kintaro. All Japanese tattoos are powerful images on the skin which are close connected with the Woodblock Prints of Hokusai and Kuniyoshi. Broadly speaking in Japan tattoos are referred to as Irezumi. Traditionally, these tattoos were done by hand  called “Tebori” which means: “engraved by hand”. These Colorful tattoos tell a story and have a beautiful flow, often these tattoo are made ton cover larger parts of the body, for example

a complete tattoo sleeve, back piece, or complete body suit.

Popular topics for Irezumi are Hannya or Buddhist Gods, Demons and other mythical creatures. The Japanese tattoos I make are custom made for you and often drawn freehand. Drawing it on the body ensures that the tattoo design are tailor made and follows the shapes of your body well.
