He is one of the major illustrators of contemporary art: Shohei Otomo, with his ball-point pen he creates stunning and intense tattooed illustrations.

Mostly black, Shohei Otomo's drawings are often sharing a very provocative sense of humor. He uses the violent reputation of yakuzas and the madness of mangas to creates badass pictures of the modern Japan. His characters are heavily tattooed, both with traditional irezumi and punk rock ink. Classic Japanese art and the uninhibited modern world are clashing in Shohei Otomo's work - and for great pleasure! If you are looking for rad tattooed art, go follow Shohei Otomo on Instagram!
