Japanese tattoos by Pitbull Tattoo Phuket – Gallery
The Japanese became interested in the art but only for its decorative attributes. The Horis – the Japanese tattoo artists – were the undisputed ancient masters of the color tattoo. Their use of pigments, perspective, and imaginative designs gave the practice a whole new appearance. During the first millennium A.D., Japan adopted Chinese culture and confined tattooing to branding wrongdoers.
