Okame tattoos are a popular design for a Japanese tattoo and they look awesome!!
We've previously told you about the traditional Japanese comic character Hyottoko and the fun tattoos he inspires, but right now we're bringing you some tattoos of his female counterpart Okame.
Okame tattoos are very similar to Hyottoko tattoos and the two images are more often than not tattooed together, or one is tattooed on one arm and the other is tattooed on the opposite. Interestingly while the character of Hyottoko has a story behind it Okame is a bit of a mystery. Aside from accompanying Hyottoko and featuring in a number of traditional Japanese artworks Okame doesn't really have a set meaning or symbolism, instead she is just another fun character inspired by traditional Japanese culture.
Yet regardless of her backstory Okame makes some gorgeous Japanese style tattoos and is a fun tattoo subject for anyone after a small symbol of the east. Whether you plan to tattoo her alongside Hyottoko or not, sit back and enjoy these 12 lovely Okame tattoos!!
