The beauty of Japanese tattoo is that everything is coded in symbols, myths and legends. Each element has a symbolism which can create a complex story once mixed with other elements. For example: certain type of flowers or animals can be used to symbolize a loved one. Also different stories can be used to represent certain moments in one’s life, like a dragon represents perseverance. This style is typically used in a body-suit-like fashion, but it can also be done in a smaller and simpler tattoo.
