      Japanese Tattoos: The Visual Splendor of the Floating World

      World-renowned tattoo artists Don Ed Hardy, Junii Shimada and Mary Joy Scott discuss Japanese tattooing both in the Edo period and today, in conjunction with the special exhibition Tattoos in Japanese Prints. Taki Kitamura of State of Grace moderates.

      The art of Japanese tattooing has come a long way from its origins in an insular, premodern Japan. Today, artists from across the globe practice this style, inking their clients with motifs made popular in the hedonistic “floating world” and transmitted across the centuries by bold, colorful woodblock prints, on view in the exhibition.
