A legacy that lives on.
Japanese tattoos are steeped in tradition.
They’re among the oldest tattoo styles around, dating back thousands of years. And they really haven’t changed all that much since their inception.
Originally worn as full-blown body suits by samurai warriors, Japanese tattoos began as a symbol of ferocity and status.
But despite their intimidating origins, Japanese tattoos are a true artform, with solid line work and shading offset by colorful blocks of ink that you can easily spot from across the room. In fact, you can spot them everywhere these days, including here in Orlando.
That’s because Japanese tattoos were designed to flow throughout the body, seamlessly covering backs, limbs and torsos as if they were a natural part of the skin they embellish. They’re showstopping and worth showing off. Good thing the great Orlando weather here makes it easy to do so.
Each Japanese tattoo is a piece of visual poetry that weaves together common symbols from Japanese myth and lore. Fierce tigers and dragons that cling to the body’s curves and crevices. Cherry blossom trees and lotus flowers dotting koi fish ponds. Demure geishas and devious masks seen throughout Japanese history.
Every shape and every color has meaning behind it, making it a great tattoo style if you want ink that’s symbolic to a time, place or person in your life.
