Japanese Savagery by Yushi Tattoo

Classic Japanese-style tattoos get a bold re-imagining at the hands of Yushi.

When you think of Japanese or Asian tattoos you think of bold colors, bright designs, and classic imagery, dragons, tigers, foo dogs and snakes. We talk often about traditional Japanese tattoos here at Tattoodo, from the history behind a particular motif to the fantastic stylings of local and international artists


Moving from Seoul, Korea, to San Diego, California in 2015, Yushi has been tattooing from Guru Tattoo ever since. Tattooing a bold Japanese style, Yushi's tattoos all share a an intense and dark look. His designs even contain 3D elements and touches of realism. 

Rife with texture, incredible light sources, and bold lines, Yushi brings a whole new layer to the traditional Japanese style. Once you've picked your jaw up from the floor head over to Instagram and give Yushi a follow if you don't already.
