      Tattoos in Japanese Prints

      Tattoos in Japanese Prints uncovers this complex interplay between ink on paper and ink on skin with more than 60 superb prints from the noted collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

      The exhibition explores the iconography Kuniyoshi and other artists selected for the tattoos in their woodblock prints, which came to adorn the bodies of real-life Japanese urban men, both laborers and dandies: lions, eagles, peonies, dragons, giant snakes, swords, the fierce Buddhist deity Fudo Myoo. These motifs — still popular today — evoked bravery, valor and strength.

      Cost: Payment required - General admission plus special exhibition admission $10.
