|Horitaka: Bushido - Legacies Of The Japanese Tattoo|
You do not have this book yet? You got to be joking...
"Bushido - Legacies of the Japanese Tattoo" put Horitaka
(an apprentice of the great Horimono master Horiyoshi III
from Yokohama/Japan) on the tattoo map, and more or
less became a classic the day it was printed.
There is some historical background on Japanese tattoo-
ing, which is definitely interesting to the novice.
I was personally grateful for the chapter with explanati-
ons (including illustrations) on all the traditional bodysu-
it "layout" styles: from the traditional one that can easi-
ly be covered by wearing a kimono, to the full-on compl-
ete bodysuit, and everything in-between.
The extensive collection of tattoo images exclusively co-
vers Horiyoshi III's works. Most of it breathtaking, it al-
most goes without saying.
Great introduction to both, the world of Irezumi / Hori-
mono, as well as the world of Horiyoshi III.
