The ocean became full with bears.
This friendly young guy reminded me that even in Japan, “tattoos are not a crime.” I love how his shoulder piece combines Mexican and Japanese motifs. At Ink Rat in Koenji.
In Kamakura, despite the “new rules” banning tattoos, there were plenty of tattoos. A win for freedom and moe.
Yes, Colin Kaepernick, you have convinced me that there is more to football than rowdy men, beer, and burka-like uniforms. He seems to invite attention and observation. I highly recommend the full video, from ESPN’s 2013 “Body Issue.” Love how he gives interview on tattoo table!
Wow! I wish I saw more of this in Tokyo ; )
So many young guys with huge tattoos. Even some women, too.
Chiba’s Onjuku remains one of my favorite day trips from Tokyo. Beach is gorgeous, you can rent most anything you need, and the tattooed yankiis are super friendly.
None of that ridiculous anti-tattoo discrimination at the beach. This is a beautiful work in progress. I wonder if it extends below the waist?
Thanks to Al’s zoom lens, it seems we’re close enough to touch this military-style crew cut guy with large arm tattoo.
Is that a power plant in the distance? Despite being at the edge of an enormous working harbor, Miura Kaigan has relatively clean water and plenty of room for all types of beach goers.
