Yakuza styled tattoos were spawned by the transnational organized crime syndicates in Japan that came to be known as the Yakuza. Members of the gangs would get very intricate, full body tattoos in the traditional manner of manually inserting ink under the skin. This is to display their bravery for enduring the intense pain such a method inflicts, although more often than not, the tattoos are easily shrouded by clothing. Nowadays the number of people that are non-yakuza getting these styled tattoos grow more and more, but still in some particular parts of japan, stores won’t allow individuals with tattoos in, or employees such as construction workers aren’t allowed to have them.

Yakuza styled tattoos are some the most beautiful and meticulously detailed tattoos I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing.
