Bold Japanese Tattoos That Looks Like Full Body Suits

1

Gakkin‘s dramatic tattoo style is so heavy and dense, it almost looks like his customers are wearing body suite! Drawing on the traditional Japanese style while paying tribute to the art of Irezumi, Gakkin’s tattoos are a bold statement in black and white.

Gakkin’s passion for tattoos began as an innocent habit of hanging out at local tattoo shops while he was enrolled in fashion school. But it wasn’t long before he decided it was time for a career change.

Bored with design school, he dropped out to pursue his dream of becoming a tattoo artist. Now Gakkin’s edgy freehand work is known around the world in the international tattoo scene.
