Japanese style tattoo, often called tattoos, are tattoos on the face, arms, leg, body or neck. Traditional Japanese tattooing involves an image of an object (e.g. an object, design or a pattern) on the upper left or lower right side of the tattoo, usually below a neck piercing. The design can be simple or elaborate, while the colour of some Japanese tattoos is based on flowers, animals or trees.
Japanese style tattoos are usually done under the direction of a traditional tattoo artist, and involve a careful design which is applied with a needle, rather than a scalpel. As Japanese style tattoos are designed for individual people, the style is not a universal one. Often people with similar ideas are inspired to do their own style tattoos, and it is also possible that a third person might contribute to the design of a particular artist’s tattoo.
The term tattoo often refers to these specific styles not a general style of tattooing which is used in Japan, China, Korea, and other Asian cultures.

The Japanese style is defined in the following way:
Japanese style tattoos are usually coloured with Japanese ink, which is an ink that is specifically made for Japanese (or Japanese style) tattoo artists, as opposed to Japanese, Korean, Chinese, or Vietnamese artists who use an ink that is not made for them.
To understand the Japanese ink, we must talk a little bit about the Japanese ink market and its importance in Japan. The Japanese ink market is very popular among the tattoo artists for various reasons:
1. The tattoo market relies heavily on traditional Korean tattooists, who are familiar with traditional style Japanese ink and Japanese artists, and thus their knowledge and experience in the style of the tattoo is very much valued.
2. The traditional style Japanese tattoo artist also wants to be successful with their reputation and their business, so that they don’t make the same mistake again by using the Japanese ink that is too expensive. Also, the Japanese tattoo industry is very competitive. If you become a small specialist or do a small shop, you know that you don’t have a lot of support in the Japanese ink market.
