This extensively illustrated volume documents the high art of tattooing in Japan. Not solely for fans of tattoos, it's equally appealing for people who are interested in Japanese culture, art and graphic design. Included are rare works by traditional masters and a diverse range of contemporary styles. The book is divided into four chapters: Tokyo, Chubu (the region between Tokyo and Kyoto, with Nagoya as its capital city), Kyoto and Osaka.
