Japanese tattooing is king. In the tattoo above, you see Mikiri, a Japanese tattoo background pattern that is an essential part of traditional Japanese tattoo design. It spreads across the body like water and like the wind it so often depicts. It is vast, large, and limitless like the void. It is challenging, deep, and beautiful. It is the pinnacle of traditional tattooing. Maybe that is why so many traditional Japanese tattoo artists study and copy it the world over.
No other type of tattooing can match its breadth, whichis all-consuming until the body is done. I have an immense amount of respect for the masters and journeymen of this tattoo art and for those who dare to wear it.
The information on my page is scarce and is designed to be so. Research will uncover the answers to whatever questions you may have. However, it should not be given away so lightly.
This is a secret society, to be sure. There are entry-level tests, there are blockades for the intermediate student who has transgressed against our clan.
There are damaging repercussions to even the most experienced if they choose to lose their way. It is a self-governing autonomous network and an establishment of trust where the daily tithe is respect. The common denominator is strength. The password is perseverance. Do you have what it takes? If not then stand well back, far out of the way.
