The Japanese Tattoo

by

The Japanese Tattoo Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A crimson fish wrestles a man. A horned demon stares menacingly. These vivid scenes are tattoos, created in pain, incised in the flesh of the Yakuza, Japan's feared secret society of gangsters. They are the visions of the Irezumi, the legendary tattoo artists, who spend years creating living masterpieces. Photographer Sandi Fellman describes this strange and violent world both in her text and in her stunning, large Polaroid photographs.

Synopsis:

A collection of photographs of the Irezumi, a secretive group of people drawn from the Japanese underworld who have chosen to have themselves transformed through tattooing into living works of art.
