If you know us, and we know you do, you probably know that we here at Tattoodo are huge nerds...huge nerds for pretty much anything artistic, creative, outside the box, strange, surreal, awesome, cool...you get the deal. Which, of course, means that we love anime and manga. After all, the Japanese are the originators of Irezumi which is based off of Ukiyo-e prints, and some of our fave anime's are based off of those prints too.
Studio Ghibli is probably the most famous anime production studio in the West, but there are definitely other people out there creating incredible anime films that inspire the heck out of us. That being said...Hayao Miyazaki does have a certain way about him...his films depict the essence of humankind, freedom, love, friendship and so many more aspects of life that really resonate with his audiences and capture their hearts. His movies have sparked so many anime tattoos that it would be difficult to keep them all in one place...and, yes, we've tried.
Back in the day we used to run home to watch Toonami on the television...Sailor Moon, Big O, Inuyasha...these were the shows that filled our lives and inspired us, our style and aesthetics, later on.
