Badass Traditional Japanese Back Tattoos By Horisumi - Kian Forreal

These Japanese back pieces are all they're cracked up to be!

Originally from Canada, Kian Forreal has cemented himself as one of Australia's best traditional Japanese tattoo artists. 

As the owner of Authent/Ink Studio in Sydney and a contributor to Inked Australia/NZ magazine, Kian prides himself on keeping tattoo traditions alive, respecting the craft on which he has built his 20-plus year career.

His love, passion and dedication to the art of Japanese tattooing saw him receive the name Horisumi from none other than the great Horiyoshi III in 2013.
