Product Description

Product Description

Tattooing in Japan goes back to the dawn of the nation's history. The ancient Chinese text Wei Zi of 297 AD relates that all the men of the land of Wa (Japan) wore tattoos on their faces and bodies. What began as talismanic markings used as protection against harm eventually became the decorative tattoos known as horimono. Today, the techniques and designs used in Japanese tattoos are acclaimed worldwide. In this first of two volumes presenting the work of some of Japan's leading horishi, or tattoo artists, The Japanese Tattoo Design Handbook Vol. 1 introduces over 80 on-skin designs from five masters that blend traditional and modern techniques. Fans of body art and tattooists alike will find this both an invaluable sourcebook and a fascinating first-time collection of ink design.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find your books on such subjects to be very good on my Kindle Fire HD to be
full of vibrant colours.The designs are so colourful and well executed that
one is often a little empathetic of Yakuza.

It's pretty short with nothing you haven't seen before, I would just use google to look at similar designs, you'll find much better pictures there
