Japanese tattoos have their long-time history and were initially used as a way of marking criminals to expose their crimes to the general public. However, it started to gain popularity as a way to decorate the body around the end of the Edo period. Japanese tattoo is also called ‘Irezumi’, known for bright, bold colors and dark greyscale backgrounds.
Japanese style tattoos mainly are inspired by woodblock prints and are interpretations of Japanese mythology and culture. The beautiful artworks typically have their meanings or symbolize something. Popular motifs are such as dragons, koi fish, cherry blossoms, hannya mask, and Japanese folk heroes.
