Japanese style tattoos, also known as Horimono or Irezumi, have unique characteristics and are used with many people around the world who love this culture and this style of traditional Japanese design.
Formerly in ancient Japan tattoos were used as a form of punishment towards a person, today it has evolved into a modern art form and expression of each person. Irezumi style tattoos were traditionally made by hand rather than using tattoo machines as they are today. This made them extremely painful.
Japanese tattoos often tend to use much of the body as a design and this leads to large sizes and time consuming work. Among the themes chosen are the Japanese dragons, cherry blossom, koi fish and geishas and samurais.
