Horihide (Hideo Kakimoto) is one of the leading exponents of "Horimono", or the traditional Japanese tattoo, and is unanimously considered a reference point for modern tattoo-artists. His style takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e prints and most of his subjects are a re-interpretation of the prints adapted to the human body. The extraordinary expressive power of his works combined with a singular formal elegance make him a true master of Japanese tattoo art. A master able to combine tradition and modernity in a synergy of rare aesthetic beauty. This lavish limited edition brings together Horihide’s exceptional work produced over the artist’s 60-year career. A must have for fans of Hirohide and Japanese tattoo art, as well as anyone interested in Japanese culture, fashion, design and its venerable iconography.

HoriHide (Hideo Kakimoto) was born in Setagaya, Japan in 1929. A self-taught artist he began tattooing at the age of 22. In his 60-year career he has had an immense influence over western tattoo artists, and has tattooed over 500 bodysuits (back, arms, buttocks, and thighs).
