The Japanese style is steeped in rich history which dates back centuries, as they were once used to dictate wealth, social status and spirituality of the Japanese people. The iconic imagery represented in the ancient Japanese style is still present in modern tattoos, with many designs incorporating fierce creatures, koi carps, kabuki masks, flowers, cherry blossom trees and Geishas.
The Japanese style is prominent for its extensive linework and heavy areas of packed color with only minimal skin breaks in between. It’s a highly complex style, but when pulled off correctly, Japanese tattoos are some of the most strikingly beautiful out there.
