Bold and Classic Japanese Tattoos by Goshu

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

Japanese tattoos have evolved through time taking on a variety of looks. Good to see that we still have some artists rockin' the classics.

Japanese tattoos are some of the most popular tattoos to collect. No doubt that the powerful and stunning imagery of this centuries-old tattoo genre have been loved and adopted throughout the East and West.

Goshu, an amazing tattooer from Brisbane, Australia, has been creating some of the boldest, simplistic yet powerful Japanese tattoos that I've encountered in my recent adventures in scouring the web for the most awesome tattoos.

Goshu's approach to the Japanese tattoo style is a solid, clean and simple rendition of classic images. The magnificent tattoos that he makes are truly reminiscent of old time Japanese tattoos: clear, bold, simple yet stunning works of art adorning the human body. Goshu simply captures the look of Japanese tattooing in the old times, proving that simplicity is key.
