it wasn't always like this though, having a good look around you can easily find some older generations of tattoo artists that featured heavy amounts of black, lines and dotwork to shade these tattoos. They were often carved into people's skin with tools that were often found in the possession of woodworkers. 

Thankfully the techniques of putting in tattoos have improved in our day and age but the art has not died off in any sense, this is something I feel we should be grateful for as some of these works of arts can impress even the biggest tattoo critic.

So here are a few examples of the various looks that fall under the Japanese Tattoo style

Japanese Tattooing is a sacred art, tattoos are still taboo in many parts of Japan, this is probably because it has gone from being legal to illegal and back again, we believe people should be free to adorn their skin however they so choose but unfortunately at times the world does not agree.
