I like tattoos but I want to know about something I have never heard anyone talk about. What kind of effect can too much ink in your body can do. After all they are injecting potencially toxic chemicals into somebodys body.
emily b (1 month ago)
the ink is all non toxic and is specifically made to go into the skin without hurting you. the only issue you'd have in a proper shop is if someone isn't sterilising properly

the ONLY thing I dislike about the japanese tattoo artstyle is all the demons they have, other than that, it´s amazing
EpicEuropean (6 months ago)
What's wrong with demons?
Mad Brah? (6 months ago)
Kortex The Weeb yeah I agree I wouldn’t want a demon, maybe another diety that represents something good at least.
Kortex (6 months ago)
And I know that, it´s just even tho these traditional tattoos look good, having demons all over your body is not my aesthetic.
Mad Brah? (6 months ago)
Well to be fair, Japanese tattoos are literally the art and history of Japan pulled from the old books onto skin and are strictly based off lore and culture. Demons are a very large part of the history and the art, and you cannot change it. Hence why Japanese style tattoos have very strict pairings, such as what flowers can go with what fish or dragons.
Luke (8 months ago)
wow its absolutely incredible how much history has gone into Japanese ink... I love how its blended into all cultures an is still highly respected as more than just tattoos... so so so beautiful... ONE LOVE(:

Does anyone know the symbolism behind the cat tattoo?
Moondog (7 months ago)
Cats are little God's of Mercy in Japan, plus it's kinda funny. Tattooing spots and stripes. I used to know what it meant but I've forgotten. There is a tail to it try googling?. Cats take you to heaven.
Samuel Čefelín (9 months ago)
I think that in Japan, cats are revered for giving good luck and some other positive results.

I want my tattoo made with hot sauce.
Addison Hill (1 year ago)

I’m currently working on a full arm sleeve at the moment and it’s going to be approximately 30-35 hours for just my right arm. So I imagine a fuck load of hours LOLLL. It’s all worth it in the end brother 🤙🏻

American Traditional will never go out of style too.
anthony vega-fujioka (6 months ago)
I find Traditional Japanese tattooing is more of an art than a style. There is so much meanings to them that they translate and show stories with each one.
Slava S (1 year ago)
I love this series! Finally some cool/interesting tattoo stuff!
