If you would like to know more about Horimyo, see more of his work, or even talk to him about possibly creating a tattoo for you the next time you’re in Tokyo, please check out his official website. 1K Films is a full production independent video company working in both the US & Japan. Japan has influenced western tattooing for more than 100 years with its colorful woodblock prints which tell the stories of legend and folklore from centuries gone but not forgotten. The proceeds from the auction will ALL (100 percent) be ┬ádonated to the Red Cross fund for Japan. Horiyoshi III, the most famous Japanese tattoo master, did his second press conference in FCCJ-Foreign Correspondent Club of Japan in Tokyo.
Horiyoshi III brought with him seven models, two young tattooed Japanese girls, and four middle-age men plus his son, all of them with finished back-piece tattoos and some of them with full tattoo body suits.

Tattoos have become very popular and it’s nice to see other people that have the same interest. And through brilliant iconography and of course the ingeniously┬áreduced, realistic, bold tattoos done by the Japanese masters.
