Japanese Tattoo Art

Posted on January 26, 2004 in misc

My friend Brian sent me this link to a very funny news article. Thinking about getting a ‘cool’ Asian tattoo? Think again! The tattoo artist in this article has decided to take matters into his own hands and label people appropriately with skin-art.

Sakai, an award-winning tattoo artist, was tired of seeing sacred Japanese words, symbols of his heritage, inked on random white people. So he used their blissful ignorance to make an everlasting statement. Any time a customer came to Sakai’s home studio wanting Japanese tattooed on them, he modified it into a profane word or phrase.”

LOL! Ahhh, poetic justice…
