Japanese Tattoo: Perseverance, Art, and Tradition

May 29 – Sept 27, 2015 | Evans Court Gallery, Level 2

Organized by the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, Japanese Tattoo: Perseverance, Art, and Tradition focuses on the work of seven internationally acclaimed tattoo artists — Horitaka, Horitomo, Horishiki, Miyazo, Shige, Junii, and Yokohama Horiken  inspired by the Japanese tradition of tattooing and heavily influenced by the traditional Japanese arts of calligraphy and ukiyo-e woodblock printmaking.

Specially commissioned photographs of work by each artist will be displayed alongside tools and relief carvings, as well as a recreated Shinto shrine. A companion book of the same title features additional photographs and writings, and is published by the Japanese American National Museum.
