Japanese Irezumi Tattoos In Dallas
Traditional Japanese tattooing, aka Irezumi, originated during the Edo period (1603-1868). Mythological creatures like dragons, kirins, and phoenixes are common imagery of the Japanese tattoo style. Every tattoo done in the Irezumi style tells a story about Japan’s rich past, and creates an Irezumi masterpiece that is deeply powerful.
