Description

This groundbreaking photographic exhibition by Kip Fulbeck and Takahiro Kitamura explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos as well as their rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices. Although tattooing is largely seen as an underground activity in Japan, it has persevered and is now internationally renowned for its artistry, lineage, historic symbolism and the skill of its practitioners.

Perseverance features the work of seven highly acclaimed tattoo artists—Horitaka, Horitomo, Horishiki, Miyazo, Shige, Junii, and Yokohama Horiken—as well and a host of other modern tattoo experts. The exhibition includes life-sized photographs of full body tattoos, artifacts and environmental displays.
