Tattoo Kewpie Dolls

The tradition of tattoos in Japan goes way back in the country's history, when early Japanese used them to decorate their bodies.

Tattoos then later became associated with criminality and were used as a punishment for serious crimes.

The art of tattooing came back in fashion in the Edo Period of Japanese history (1603-1868), when mostly young men had full body tattoos done by wood-block print artists.

Laborers, firemen and Japanese outlaws, known now as yakuza, began to adopt brightly colored body tattoos.

Illustrations based on the Chinese novel, Suikoden, became particularly popular.
