We are under way with the production of our new book on traditional Japanese irezumi. This time we will be presenting the handtattooed art of Toshikazu Nakamura. Besides from our own photographs captured during two visits to his studio in southern Japan, the book will feature a multitude of photographs from Nakamura Sensei's own photoalbums (examples above).
This book will be a must for anyone into the more graphical and robust look of Irezumi, a style gaining ever increasing recognition here in the west.
The book, "Dentouwaza", is scheduled to be released at the Milan Tattoo Convention February 10-12 2012.
Pre-orders are possible from the 1st of December this year. These books will be shipped 1-2 weeks before the official release date and must be paid for in advance.
