    Japanese Symbolism

    The history of Japanese body modification goes back thousands of years and records note that all Japanese males had heavy tattoos on their faces and bodies. Some Japanese tattoos are associated with strength, courage, protection while others represent luck, success, and good fortune but each has a meaning.

    Traditional Japanese tattooing can be full of symbolism so choosing the right one can be hard, consequently these meanings can be difficult to interpret or understand without a grasp of the language or history. Fortunately, as J Lee has so much experience in this area, from is training under a Japanese master in the far east he can make this a much easier decision!

    Over 30 Years Experience

    J Lee has specialised in traditional Japanese tattooing for over 30 years. He studied the art of traditional Japanese tattooing in the Far East under a traditional Japanese master tattoo artist and learned all the techniques needed to produce the very best in traditional Japanese tattooing.
