Book News Annotation:

A journey through the elusive world of traditional Japanese tattooing, based largely on Takahiro's experiences as a client and student of the master Hiryoshi III. He and Katie trace bushido, the samurai code of chivalry, through the imagery and interpersonal dynamics of the veiled subculture. They include over 200 color photographs of Horiyoshi's work, and five unpublished prints by him in a format similar to that in his 100 Demons of Horiyoshi III. The page titled Index is blank.
