Japanese tattoo artist

Child of Tokyo since his birth - Japanese tattooist - ultra traditionalist - He brings back the Japanese tattoo to its most primitive roots. He has his secret tattoo studio as it should be in the old Tokyo where the traditional Geisha and Yakuza districts are located in Asakusa.

He learns tattooing with Ryu himself from the Oriwaka family - Grand master of Japanese tattooing in the Kensei Style.

His tattoo style rather from Southern Japan - A larger scale for patterns and backgrounds Mikiri. Most traditionalists use the machine for the lines - He is one of the very few traditionalists who go back to the toborie for the application of the lines.

He rarely leaves the timeless Japan above Tokyo. It is a pleasure for Venomen to edit two of his images
