I’m a fan of a good book and a good tattoo, and Tattoo in Japan is just that. This book showcases the best that Japanese tattoo artists have to offer, ranging from traditional Japanese tattoos to tattoos with more modern inspirations and influences.

Tattoo in Japan is divided up into four chapters with each chapter representing a different geographical region. The book is also filled with essays that explain the history of tattoo art. This is really cool because it combines two things I love, reading and tattoos, into one awesome package. So, if you agree, raise your reading glasses with me and check out Tattoo in Japan.
