11 Fierce Katana Tattoos

Asian culture is always a big go on the tattoo world, but the Katanas are the coolest!

"The sword is the soul of the Samurai" said Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first reported Shogun in Japanese military history. The phrase emphases the importance of the weapon that from the 17th century to moderns times has been the most important one in Japan, still today it is looked upon as the most elegant weapon for the cultured ones! 

With such importance it seems only obvious that when inking one of these, you should look for the best, and understand the significance of what you are adopting in your tattoo collection. Here are 11 katana designs for you to take a look!
