"Tattoo collecting is a spiritual pursuit not an addiction, while addiction is a physiological need. Addicts repeatedly take the same drug over and over without limit. A tattoo collection has variety, and it has an end. Once you collect the whole set, you're done." Horiyoshi III to John Mack http://goo.gl/2Unjbb

Irezumi Session By Master Horiyoshi III

Today's inspiration from the Horiyoshi Archive

For over 40 years now he has been working to bring Irezumi out from the underworld. In the 80’s, he was one of its modernizers. By introducing the machine in the hand-made tradition he revolutionized the world of tattooing. At 68 years old, in his studio located in Yokohama, he’s still one the of the finest needle artists in Japan. https://www.bigtattooplanet.com/features/artist-profile/irezumi-horiyoshi-iii #HoriyoshiTheThird #HTT

Horimono is a beautiful art form, which flourished in the Edo period. These intricate and meticulously detailed tattoos became a proud symbol of the common people. Tattoos have been associated with organized crime and "unclean" society, but these tattoos became the backdrop of a culture, appearing in novels, Kabuki Theater and other forms of art. Horimono became a source of pride and unity to those belabored by the rulers of the Edo Period. They offer us a key to the understanding of the culture of the common people during that time. http://academic.mu.edu/meissnerd/tattoo.html #EdoPeriod #Horimono #Irezumi #HoriyoshiTheThird #HTT
