When not Travelling, I am mainly in Miyazaki but am also available for some appointments in Tokyo on Request. Inspired by Life, Powered by CreativityLaunched in 2008, DesignSwan is a web blog devoted to uncovering (and sharing) the latest and greatest design, inspiration, graphics and technology from all over the world. There are so many different terms for tattoo in Japanese, such as Irezumi, Horimono, Kakushibori… (wiki).
Continuing since about the 3rd century, tattooing in Japan is a tradition that has been developed over a long period of history. And just keep in mind, you’re not allowed to enter a public bath (onsen) in Japan if you have tattoos. I have decided to see how I could develop my ‘new style’ based on very old school Japanese Tattoo as seen in the old prints! Kuniyoshi’s prints frequently feature tattoos, and many of his designs have entered the mainstream of modern tattooing. Newer: Tattoo Sleeve, Flowers, Fire, Dragon →A concept that I really wanted to explore!


Tattoos of Japanese style, aka Irezumi, Horimono, are unique and practiced by more and more people who love traditional Japanese cultures.
It’s a painful process to get a traditional Japanese tattoo as irezumi is still done traditionally by hand rather than done by needle gun. On a side note, many people asked me to buy some of the designs that are displayed on this site.
Today I will continue the exploration of the amazing tattoo world, talking something about Traditional Japanese Tattoos which is known for their full body styling, bold lines, historic patterns and traditional images. Popular themes include: carps, tigers, mythical animals such as dragons and phoenixes, flowers such as Japanese cherry and chrysanthemum, and the Buddhist motifs like Amitabha Tathagata, bodhisattva and Siddham script (bonji). What I am especially interested by here is to use this style as background with quite colourful and painting style foreground elements with loads of details and maybe some hidden patterns within the dark blue areas! The wrestler’s snow-white body was decorated at an early age by a master tattoo artist with an elaborate all-body design of peonies and ChineseA shishi (leonine creatures). Tattooed mark was used to be performed as punishment in ancient Japan, it has now evolved to a form of modern art as it is known today.
