It was a quiet weekend. So, I had time to visit my favorite Bookstore. No, I don’t go there to buy motorcycle magazines (I receive them all at the shop), but just to pick up a few new books I like to keep by my bedside in case of insomnia (I have quite a few). So, how not to notice such a gorgeous cover among thousand of hard cover books waiting to be wrapped for the holidays. Bushido? I had to know right away what it means. The Samurai spirit, Bushido, is an integral component of Japanese tattooing that is traced through the imagery and interpersonal dynamics of this veiled subculture. The text of this book is based largely on Takahiro Kitamuras experiences as client and student of the famed Japanese tattoo master, Horiyoshi III. Over 200 beautiful photos by Jai Tanju capture the breathtaking tattoo artistry of Horiyoshi III. It also includes five original, unpublished prints. You don’t need to have Tattoos or to want one to read this one. A book you want to keep in your collection. Legacies Of The Japanese Tattoo.
