A tour-de-force of Japanese tattoo art by the world-renowned artist, Horihide.

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.
