As the power of the common people of Japan grew in the latter half of the Edo period (18th and 19th century CE) horimono, or traditional Japanese tattoos, be…

Wait. Did he say “The mean streets of Tokyo”? …..that’s funny.
well,to say the tebori-style “does not hurt” is crap….even getting tattoed with a machine sucks after 2hours..
yes. its not speaking from experiance or anything like that at all. i just made it up from the top of my head and not from sitting 15 hours for a tebori
If people can see the tattoo or not doesn’t matter – it’s all about the bearer and nothing else
these documentaries always claim the tebori-style (japanese handmade tattooing) is so painful, but in all honesty it’s less painfull than using machine.
You’ve convinced me: I can’t admire anyone who eats at McDonald’s.
Blame hip-hop! (I’m only half-serious.)
Maybe some people consider (some types of) religion nearly as enslaving as (some types of) government.
Lol. Too funny.
Naruto OST 1 soundtrack brought me here
their the IRS tax men of Japan
Cocaine leads anywhere. lawl.
why does the last words is in japanese? what was that mean?
Yakuza style is not Samurai follower and Bushi-do.
Yakuza has another style, which derivation is different from Bushi(Samurai).
In Japan, fireman also have tattoos. Not to be grizzly, but it obviously makes identifying a burnt body much easier.
The Japanese do not fear yakuza. More so, Japanese society lives peacefully with yakuza. Go to any big Matsuri (festival) in Japan, you’ll be interacting with yakuza. There are other activities where you’ll find yakuza, such as vice largely due to prohibition as in too many societies everywhere: gambling, drugs, prostitution, etc. Even then, there’s no need to fear yakuza.
so it that good or bad. they distribute rice to disaster victims
lol, fucking comedy guy brought me here.
No because that kind of tattoo is for yakuzas, thats why normal people fear them, lol if they dont have that tattooes in their body, they will be look as a normal person
Now I really want a Yakuza Japan tattoo on back in color. The tatto I want is a Japan bear fish in its mouth and caught two other fish or a panda bear.
Survialistsongs remark isn’t correct at all. Most Americans love europe and want to do nothing more than explore it
yes thats right
It’s not just Japanese who are part of the yakuza. They also exept Koreans as well. There was this one news story about yakuza members held prisoner in North Korea for 5 years for drug smuggling and were later released.
well i’m asking this because if you go write on youtube yakuza is japanese, you will see that there are alot of videos with negative comments towards the yakuza, and it seems the japanese have a bad relationship with them
By following the news & on Wikipedia.
how do you know that??
China and Japan have such rich and fertile culture i applaud you
@ razvanescu86 .You must be queer because you keep talking about dicks. Euro’s brought diseases. And what culture do you have? Everything from Europe was taken/barrowed.
well you can suck our dicks…cuz we are more organised and have a better life than you fat stupid fucks
Here in America, we Americans think you europeans are stuck-up stick-up-the-ass faggy assholes… take care.
One day I going poke one Horimono 🙂
lol, cocaine and crips brought me here.
when street / petty crime is low due to the presence of the yakuza, thats some heavy shit.
One thing admirable about the Yakuza is they are loyal to the Japanese homeland. Plus the tattoos are awesome. If anything, they are the modern day samurai.
weed brought me here
