japanese tattoo art designs

Tattoo in Japan

Fans of Japanese culture and of tattoo art will find much to enjoy in this large format photobook exploring the diversity of Japan's tattoo scene

In Japan, the choice to adorn your body with ink is not without stigma: for instance, you're not allowed to enter a public bath (onsen) in Japan if you have tattoos.

The volume contains some 250 photographs, on more than 300 pages, and weighs nearly seven pounds. It ends with notes on how and where one might go about getting a really nice tat in Japan, and by the time you reach the end, you'll be tempted. My coveted review copy will be occupying prime real estate on the living room table, right next to a related title also published by Edition Reuss -- Black Tattoo Art: Modern Expressions of the Tribal.

We are the US distributor of Tattoo in Japan. For whatever reason, Amazon doesn't have the book listed as "available" from them although we regularly ship them this book. Unfortunately we're closed for inventory for the next few days. We can ship this book beginning Jan 4. If you like,
