Japanese (Irezumi) Tattoos

One of the most iconic forms of tattooing in history, Japanese tattoos use design concepts selected from ancient folklore, and more, such as koi, dragons, and Buddhist deities. Gracefully forming the tattoo to the body is also a very important aspect of this iconic style traditionally called Irezumi.
