Kofuu-Senju Publications shooting for new Irezumi book "Dentobori"



Today we spent the whole day shooting for our upcoming book on hand tattooing Irezumi master Nakamura Toshikazu from Fukuoka, Japan. After setting up our lights and other equipment the day flew by in a blur of amazing traditional Japanese tattoo pieces, all of which will form the visual outline for a book we feel will become a classic.

Weather in Fukuoka proved a shift from the rainy and windy Yokohama we arrived in, all due to a shift in direction of the approching cyclone we feared was going to affect our visit to this southern island of Japan.

We remind any buyers of "Ryushin" that no books will be shipped until our return to europe in the end of the upcoming week.
