Japanese Tattoos explains the imagery featured in Japanese tattoos so that readers can avoid getting ink they don't understand or, worse, that they'll regret. This photo-heavy book will also trace the history of Japanese tattooing, putting the iconography and kanji symbols in their proper context so readers will be better informed as to what they mean and have a deeper understanding of irezumi.
Tattoos featured will range from traditional tebori hand-poked and kanji tattoos to anime-inspired and modern works; as well as everything in between. For the first time, Japanese tattooing will be put together in a visually attractive, informative, and authoritative way.
What's more, there will be interviews with clients, who are typically overlooked in similar books, allowing them to discuss what their Japanese tattoos mean to them. Those who read this informative tattoo guide will be more knowledgeable about Japanese tattoos should they want to get inked or if they are simply interested in Japanese art and culture.
Ferris explores the creation of the most universally respected metal album.
Slayer's controversial "Reign in Blood" remains the gold standard for extreme heavy metal: Japanese Tattoos: Working in a much-maligned genre, guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King emerged as the Lennon and McCartney of speed metal, penning a collection of apocalyptic scenes comparable to the dark work of novelists like Cormac McCarthy and Herman Melville. Tattoos in modern Japan[ edit ] At the beginning of the Meiji period the Japanese government , wanting to protect its image and make a good impression on the West and to avoid ridicule, outlawed tattoos, and irezumi took on connotations of criminality.
Nevertheless, fascinated foreigners went to Japan seeking the skills of tattoo artists, and traditional tattooing continued underground.
Tattooing was legalized by the occupation forces in ,  but has retained its image of criminality. For many years, traditional Japanese tattoos were associated with the yakuza , Japan's notorious mafia , and many businesses in Japan such as public baths, fitness centers and hot springs still ban customers with tattoos.
Unlike the US, even finding a tattoo shop in Japan may prove difficult, with tattoo shops primarily placed in areas that are very tourist or US military friendly.
In , the then mayor of Osaka, Toru Hashimoto , started a campaign to rid companies of their employees with tattoos. If they have them, they should remove them—or find work elsewhere.
Unlike traditional irezumi, where the majority of the tattoo decision making is left up to the artist, customers bring in a design of their choice or can decide on what they would like at the shop. Many Japanese artists are well-versed in multiple styles besides traditional Japanese tattoos, giving customers the ability to select from a wide assortment of options, anywhere from tribal to new age styles.
Modern tattoos are done via an electric machine, in which the ink can be inserted into the machine or the needle tip can be dipped into ink for application. Japanese artists are lauded for their quality of work, despite being a bit pricey, and are highly sought after.
The process is also much more formal than western tattooing.
Whereas western tattoo artists tend to do exactly what the customer wants, traditional irezumi artists tend to go back and forth with the customer and discuss what they would like the tattoo to look like as well as reserve the right to refuse service. Rather than electric machines, wooden handles and metal needles attached via silk thread are utilized.
This in itself can be a daunting task though it has been made easier by advent of the Internet because such artists are often surprisingly secretive, and introductions are frequently made by word of mouth only. Traditional tattoo artists train for many years under a master.
They will sometimes live in the master's house, and may spend years cleaning the studio, observing, practicing on their own flesh, making the needles and other tools required, mixing inks, and painstakingly copying designs from the master's book before they are allowed to tattoo clients. They must master all the intricate skills—unique styles of shading, the techniques used for tattooing by hand—required to create the tattoos their clients will request.
They will usually be given a tattoo name by their master, most often incorporating the word "hori" to engrave and a syllable derived from the master's own name or some other significant word. In some cases, the apprentice will take the master's name, and will become The Second or Third and so on.
After an initial consultation during which the client will discuss with the tattooist the designs they are interested in, the work begins with the tattooing of the outline.
This will usually be done in one sitting, often freehand without the use of a stencil , which may require several hours to complete. When the outline is complete, the shading and colouring is done in weekly visits, whenever the client has money to spare. Wearers of traditional tattoos frequently keep their art secret, as tattoos are still seen as a sign of criminality in Japan, particularly by older people and in the work place.
Many yakuza and other criminals themselves now avoid tattoos for this very reason. Glossary of Japanese tattoo terms[ edit ] This section does not cite any sources.
