The world very well knows that Japanese culture is as colorful as its history. Their influence to the world’s trends in art, fashion, and technology are very distinct and innovative. Truly, the Japanese people have their way of expressing themselves and their culture to the world which in turn makes us love them even more.

In the realm of art, Japanese’ influence is everywhere. You may know about origami, ikebana, and yakuza. Yes, you heard it right. Well, this is just a personal opinion, but I think that the Japanese version of the notorious mafia has something in them that fascinates the young and liberated generation—their body tattoos.

Members of the yakuza are very well known with their elaborate tattoos that run almost all throughout their bodies. This sparks the interests of tattoo artists to recreate the effort to the public by creating tattoo masterpieces that depicts all of japan. Some Japanese-inspired tattoos are almost like the ones one could find in a yakuza’s body, while some others just show the beauty of the country from the perspective of a very satisfied tourist.
