The First Tattoo Museum in The World

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

Maybe you don't know much about the first tattoo museum where we can find the old tattoo supply. But you may be familiar with Yoshihito Nakano, known as Horiyoshi III. As a traditional Japanese Irezumi tattoo ambassador, in the early 1980s, he conducted extensive cultural and artistic exchanges with the West, demonstrating his outstanding technique and artistic accomplishments, and was widely acclaimed. In the traditional Japanese irezumi, his technique reached an amazing level. He is also the owner of the world's first tattoo museum.

The Tattoo Museum in Yokohama was established in September 1999, and Mayumi Nakano (Horiyoshi III’s wife) runs it. All the works on display are from his personal collections, including 12 pieces of tattoos, which donated by volunteers. They are traditional Japanese tattoo equipment in the past several centuries, and many of them are original works done by famous tattoo artists from all over the world. Such as Ed Hardy, Leu family, Mick Tattoo, Luke Atkinson, Hanky Panky, Lal Hardy, George Bone and so on.

His private collections are filled with information about culture, customs, history and current skin art around the world. There are hundreds of exhibits in the museum, and the museum is currently published on overseas travel guides.

You can see some rare clothes and decorations, tebories, color powders, handkerchiefs and real cockroaches from Polynesia, as well as some original books and paintings from the Edo period. These are Yoshihito Nakano’s collections, witnessing the early tattoos played an important role in Japanese culture.

The museum also sells a lot of great things and works of art from the masters.

Although this small museum is not easy to find, it is worth a visit because of its authenticity and interesting items on display; here you can see the development and history of tattoo culture. I have been to many mainstream museums with white walls and strict rules, but it is very different. If you are interested in tattoo culture and happen to be in the Yokohama area, you should challenge it,  because it has a lot of historical information about Japanese tattoo scenes.

The Past and Present of Old School Tattoo

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

Old school tattoo (also written as "Old skool tattoo") is a western or traditional American tattoo style. Its characteristics are very clear: the patterns are bright colors (mostly red, yellow, green, blue) and black outlines. There are few or no shadows. In that time, the tattoo supply used to tattoo was not as good as the one we use today. 
Boat tattoos
In the early years, American traditional tattoo carriers were mainly sailors. After the end of the American War of Independence, American sailors formed a tattoo culture. There are several reasons: One of the main reasons is to ensure that there are clearly distinguishing marks on their bodies. At that time, maritime conflicts continued, and if they were captured and could not prove their identity, they would be recognized as pirates. In order to avoid this, they can prove that they are the person they claim by a specific tattoo. In addition, as a kind of "Medal of Honor", sailors got tattoos in foreign voyages to the countries with rich tattoo cultures, such as Japan and the Pacific Islands; so they can prove that they had been there.

This is "Sailor Jerry" Collins, the father of the old school who joined the US Navy in his early years and mastered the tattoo art during his trip to Polynesia. Later, after he retired, he moved to the Hawaiian dock, where he opened a tattoo shop and it soon became the favorite destination for sailors passing by the waters.
the father of the old school
For a while, tattoos were still not in the mainstream culture of the United States. The main carriers are speeding parties, soldiers, gang members, and circus geeks. Body art has not yet been accepted.
Anchor tattoo
After the 1970s, this situation quickly began to change. With the rise of punk and cultural movements, Americans’ attitudes toward tattoos began to change rapidly. The tattoos were becoming more and more popular, and the serious negative reviews had disappeared. However, the tattoo did not become mainstream until 2000.
Anchor and woman tattoo
In 1991, 21% of Americans had tattoos. After 14 years, this number reached 40%. The tattoos are no longer associated with a particular subculture or social marginality, instead, they became a trend culture. As a result, the demands for tattoos and artists has increased dramatically. In the past 20 years, the number of tattooed Americans has grown faster than any other period in American history. The material was also far beyond the sailor tattoo elements, and many American tattoo artists got inspiration from Japanese and tribal tattoo cultures. New styles and techniques appeared, and styles such as Dot work, watercolor, black and gray, and realism have emerged.
pin up girls
The traditional American tattoo is still very popular and is also a mainstream style. The new school tattoo, which combines the old school's old-fashioned flash art style with new technology and improved quality, is also very popular. American tattoos may be much later than many other tattoo cultures, but the old school pattern will not be outdated at any time.

15 Kinds of Tibetan Tattoo Styles and Meanings

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

In the rich and splendid Tibetan cultural heritage, the spread of religious civilization is vast and has a profound and far-reaching impact on the formation and development of Tibetan culture. Tibetan tattoos are not only physical but also spiritual. Not only beautiful but also rich in content, Tibetan tattoos are not only related to Tibetan Buddhism but also reflect all aspects of Tibetan culture. I want to share 15 kinds of Tibetan tattoo materials and meanings.
Tibetan tattoo
Lotus: It is one of the most common Buddhist art tattoos, symbolizing the quality of the sludge, the purity, and the fruit. Tibetan Buddhism believes that the lotus symbolizes the ultimate goal, that is, to cultivate a positive result.
Lotus tattoo
Tibetan: Tibetan grammar is based on Sanskrit grammar. Tibetan letters are based on Sanskrit. Sanskrit and Hindi also use this text, which is similar to Sanskrit.
Tibetan
3-phrase mantras : (Zen) Buddhism, eliminating suffering and punishment. Tibetan Buddhism regards these 3-phrase mantras as all roots and circulates and chanting, that is, it can eliminate disasters and achieve good morality.
Tibetan
Acalanatha: Acalanatha is the first of the Eight Bodhisattva in Buddhism. It has the meaning of being able to remove obstacles when encountering any difficulties. Acalanatha looks angry so that the evil spirits that invade human beings are feared and far away so that all human beings keep being good men in their life.
Acalanatha
Mandala: It is the center of the Buddhist tradition's cultivation energy. Camellia is also known as the Mandala flower. It is a lucky flower in Buddhism. According to legend, when the Buddha publicized Buddhism, he carried mandala flower, and it rained mandala flower, symbolizing peace and tranquility, good luck.
mandala
Kapala: Tibet's kapala, the instrument of Tibetan Buddhism, shows the shortness and impermanence of life. It also shows that the practitioner has stopped attachment to the body. The attachment to the body connects people to the pain and troubles of the world. It is given the meaning of keeping peace and auspiciousness.
kapala tattoo
Kila: It is a common instrument in the Tibetan area, also known as Phurba. Small ones are often used as carry-on amulets, can eliminate all their sin.
Kila
Tibetan auspicious knot: The cross line in the eternal knot symbolizes how everything is connected. It can also represent how fairs and wisdom between religious and secular are connected.
Tibetan auspicious knot
The Dharma Chakra is one of the most important symbols of Buddhism, and it essentially represents the endlessness of reincarnation or rebirth.
Dharma Chakra
White Conch: The Sutra was publicized to the world by Sakyamuni, like the sound of the conch. Therefore, the Conch is often blown at Buddhism Conferences. In Tibet, the right-handed white conch is the most respected and is regarded as a symbol of the world, because they believe its voice can arrive a faraway place, which also symbolizes the resounding voice of Bodhidharma.
White Conch
Victory Building: Tibetan Buddhism uses its metaphor for eleven kinds of troubles to govern, namely, quit, set, wisdom, liberation, great sorrow, emptiness, incompetence, convenience, selflessness, understanding, prejudice, a blessing by Buddha and heart is quiet.
Choggi Gyaltshan
Aquarius: It means that the luck is perfect, there is no loophole, it is a symbol of success.
Aquarius
Survana matsay: Fish in the water, smooth and unimpeded. Buddhism uses its metaphor to describe practitioners who transcend the world and are free and open-minded. In Tibetan Buddhism, the male and female goldfish symbolize the liberation and symbolizes recovery, eternal life, regeneration and so on.
Survana matsay
Mahakala: Mahakala is the chief protection of Tibetan Buddhism. It is a combination of fighting gods, kitchen gods, grave gods, and luck gods.
Mahakala
Tara: Tara, Tibetan is called "Zhuoma", Chinese translation "Save Buddha", "Duoluo Bodhisattva". Doro means "eyes" in Sanskrit, because it originated from the eyes of the Great Goddess of Mercy Bodhisattva, and because the Tara is the devotional rescuer of the Guanyin Bodhisattva incarnation, relieves the difficulties, and sends the difficulties to the other shore, so the name of salvation.
Tara
Tibetan tattoos are a wonderfully artistic way of expressing the spirit of the wearer. Even those who are not Buddhists cannot miss the powerful nature of symbolism. The variety of symbols, the deep meaning behind them, and the never-ending stories they can combine make Tibetan tattoos a beautiful and powerful form for body art.

Tragedy Caused by Black Henna Tattoos

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

If you want tattoo by yourselves,need to to prepare a complete tattoo supply. This will cost you a lot of time and money. There is no doubt that the tattoo on the skin will be painful. Many people are afraid to tattoo because they are afraid of pain. It seems that a temporary tattoo, such as tattoo stickers or simulation tattoos, is a good choice for the people who want to get a tattoo but fear pain and regret.
Henna tattoos become new favorite for many tattoo lovers since there is no needles no pain when people get them.
henna tattoo
A Henna tattoo is a kind of body painting, and a sort of old body decoration art. It is very popular in Southeast Asia, Middle East and North Africa.  
The material for hand painting is from a certain shrub named Henna. People pick off its leaves and break them down,then leaves release a pigment called lawsone. This dye is an important material for hand painters.
To be serious, it is different from common tattoos. It is painted on skin as a decoration, rather than pierced. Generally, it can last for several days or a few of weeks.
henna tattoos
The story for today is about this kind of tattoo.
Unfortunately, the hero regrets getting henna tattoos forever.
The couple in this picture are from United Kingdom. The husband, Martin Gulliver, 50-year-old, is a Royal Mail manager. His wife, Sylvia, is 43-year-old.
Sylvia
They have one son and one daughter.
The son is older, 9-year-old. The daughter is 7-year-old.
Sebastian
The family lived a happy life.They love their children ardently.
The family decided to go on holiday in Egypt in summer.
Sylvia Martin
At first, the journey was great.
But Sylvia went to the hospital with a gall bladder infection at the second week. Luckily, she recovered soon.
The children were well behaved when their mother was in hospital.
Martin was gratified and decided to reward them.
Martin
As I said at the beginning, even though henna tattoos are new to us, they has existed for more than 1000 years. You can see them everywhere in Egypt. The two children had been attracted by this art since they came there. And they told Martin many times that they wanted ones.
Martin considered it. He thought henna tattoos were not permanent and the skin art was kind of blessing, so he agreed them to get henna tattoos. Maybe the tattoos can also be a good sign for the family.
Madison 2
There was a salon that offered henna tattoos at the four-star hotel where they lived in.
The two children who were under 10 had their first tattoos, black henna tattoos.
tattooing
The arm on right was Madison’s
However, Sebastian regretted it soon. He said the tattoo was itchy and cleaned it.
As for Madison, she didn’t feel any uncomfortable. She were it until the holiday was over.
Madison
However, shortly after returning home, it was starting to get bad on 25th, July.
At first, the skin under her tattoo was itchy and started to bubble. They washed it right away.
At that time, Martin begun to find more information about black henna tattoos online.
However, what he saw was all the disturbing truth...
tattooed
He found henna tattoos should be red-brown. The reason why Madison’s tattoo was black was that the material contained a chemical dye.
This chemical ingredient is called paraphenylenediamine  (PPD), which is usually used in permanent hair dye.
Tattoo paste will cause allergic contact dermatitis once it contains PPD at high level (over 2.5%). And its sensitization has a major impact on children’s health, the consequences are unimaginable.
body art
The couple took Madison to hospital right away. At first, doctors gave them steroid cream to treat the tattoo area. But her condition didn’t become better, blisters started to form on Madison’s fingers. She was quickly sent to the emergency room.
Doctors in a general hospital gave them several different creams and ointments, but non of them worked.
Martin started to panic and took her to burn’s specialists Salisbury District Hospital.
black henna tattoos
Outside the clinic,the couple became more and more restless.
Martin said: 'We started to panic. They had never seen it before, and each time we went in they were trying different things but it was getting worse and worse.'
Luckily, experts knew how to deal with Madison’s condition after they diagnosed her illness.
skin art
In order to curing her burning sensation better, doctors carried out a test on the liquid seeping from the blisters on Madison's skin.
After dealing with these blisters, Madison was referred to a scar management unit and has to wear a pressure bandage for at least six months to minimise the scars covering her arm.
"Because of this black Henna tattoo, my daughter is likely to leave a permanent trauma." Martin repented.
tattoo art
In an interview, Martin said that he felt guilty seeing the young daughter suffering such pain.
If he had refused their request, this tragedy wouldn’t have happened.
'We were entirely unaware of the dangers and I think they should warn of this in the brochures.It is dangerous to use chemicals on children. We share our painful experience, because we don't want to have such horrible reactions to anybody in the future again.
chemical burn
The hotel in Hurghada sent the family an apology letter. They said they no longer offered the tattoos in salon when they what happened to Madison.
inked
The experience of the Martin family has caused widespread concern in the UK.
In just one week, it is not the first case of adverse reactions caused by henna tattoos, like Madison.
Just earlier this week, a 7-year-old boy named Theo Luckett also suffered fatal allergic reactions because he also got a henna tattoo when he took on a holiday in Bulgaria.
Theo Luckett
In response to two cases in the week, the National Health Service warns:
these 'black henna' tattoos can contain high levels of toxic chemical dye, which is normally illegal to use on the skin.
In an interview,many exports said everyone who wants to try black henna tattoos should be cautious about the dangers of PPD being abused.
A doctor said: 'PPD is safely and legally used in permanent hair dyes where clear instructions are given, and where the maximum level is controlled by law. But black henna often contains PPD at high levels, to give a dark colour quickly.
tattooist
Apart from the chemical burn and possible scarring in reaction to a black henna tattoo, there is a real risk of becoming sensitised to PPD.
As we said, PPD can lead to allergic contact dermatitis when its level is 2.5%.
In a word, PPD is not that harmful itself. But if you have tried black henna tattoos and touch PPD again,  there may be a serious allergic reaction.
The consequence may be worse....
henna
A British woman Julie McCabe died in 2012 because of hair dye which led a serious allergic reaction.
At that time, Julie’s family are puzzled by her death, since it is not her first time to use that hair dye.
Later, according to the police investigation report, they discovered that she had had a black henna tattoo abroad 5 years earlier.
Since then, every time she used hair dye, she suffered different allergic reaction, such as itching and rashes. Tragically, she was not aware of that in time. She died the last time she used her hair dye.
Julie McCabe

Remember that real henna paste is red-brown and is made from natural plant.
If you are offered a black henna tattoo, it isn't actually true henna. Please be vigilant.

Is Your Tattoo Infected? 14 Signs of Infection

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

It is necessary to use clean and tattoo supplies when tattooing. This is a prerequisite for ensuring that it is not susceptible to infection. A good tattoo also needs attention to the tattoo aftercare. In some cases you may still be infected for a variety of reasons, and the infected tattoo will have some common symptoms. Often, some of these symptoms may also be that it is healing. However, the more symptoms that occur at the same time, the higher the chance of infection.body tattoo
1. Continuous Extreme Pain
In general, all new tattoos will have a certain degree of pain in the first few days. The larger the tattoo, the longer the surface pain usually. But if the tattoo is still very painful after 7-10 days, then it may be a sign of infection.
2. Rash
The rash may have different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. Although many rashes are only red and smooth, many rashes can be uneven.
body tattoo
3. The tattoo area is extremely redness
Almost all new tattoos will become inflamed for a few days, but if the tattoo still becomes redder after 5-7 days, it may mean that the infection has begun.
4. The tattoo area surface become hot
Due to the body's natural healing response to the tattoo, most of the blood flow to the area naturally increases the local temperature. However, if the tattoo area still get hot after a week, this may be a sign of possible infection.
body tattoo
5. Itching
Almost all new tattoos will have itching during the recovery phase, but if your itching is not disappeared after a week and becomes more extreme, it may be a sign of infection.
6. Swelling
The swelling of the new tattoo is very common, especially for tattoos located below the waist, the swelling will be more obvious. If the swelling spreads from the tattoo area and does not decrease within 7-10 days, this may be caused by an infection.
body tattoo
7. Extremely/Unusual Scabbing
Tattoo scab is completely normal during tattoo healing. However, if the entire tattoo becomes full of crusty, thick, itchy scabs and begin to ooze and bleed, then this may be a sign of infection.
8. Blister
Blisters are not a common side-effect of getting a tattoo and therefore any blistering on the skin around the tattooed area should be seen as suspicious and potentially the result of an infection and should be treated.
body tattoo
9. Pimples or Ooze Pus
Pimples can be common on a new tattoo and are generally not a problem, however if you develop pimples that begin to ooze and pus, or more serious then an infection is likely. Depending on the type of infection, the pus can be clear, fluid, or thick. If this happens to you in the first three days - it is likely to be completely normal.
10. Foul Odor
If the exudation in the tattoo is accompanied by an odor, it usually indicates an infection has occurred.
body tattoo
11. Red Streaking
If a long red lines appear that looks like they’re streaking away from your tattoo, you should seek medical attention immediately. This is a serious sign of infection.
12. Swollen lymph nodes
There are some small nodules around the body called lymph nodes that help to filter out impurities in the blood. If an infection is present, the lymph nodes closest to the infection usually begin to swell.
tattoo
13. High Temperature, Fever, Extreme Tiredness
In general, all infections have symptoms that increase core body temperature and cause drowsiness and extreme fatigue.
14. Increased Heart Rate and Increased Breathing
If the symptoms also include increased heart rate, increased breathing and confusion, seek medical attention immediately as these may be serious infections.
body tattoo
NOTE: The infection may have only one of the above symptoms, or multiple symptoms may occur at the same time. The more appeared, the higher the chance of infection. Keep in touch with the tattooist at any time, he will give you relevant professional advice based on experience! Do not blindly treat by yourself.body tattoo

From Punishment to Reception: The History of French Tattoos

November 20, 2019 by J Wu  

Millions of people from different borders, classes and culture have modified their bodies with ink. Although many people are fascinated by the aesthetic value of tattoos, few people are interested in the ups and downs of the history of tattoo development. The French tattoo history is a colorful classic case that shows how attitudes to tattoos have changed over the centuries.
Since the 16th century, French voyagers have seen a variety of body art from the South Pacific to the Americas. In the eyes of some French observers, these people are “original” outsiders “civilizations” and their tattoos were just tribal cultures. Others, especially sailor tattoos, were inspired by their journey. By the turn of the 19th century, "tattoos" had a common name in Europe, such as tatouages, Tatowiren or tattoos.
tattoo history
In the 19th century in France, the authorities began to use tattoos to mark a different "marginal person": the criminal. In 1832, the French criminals ended the era of marking criminals with a soldering iron and instead used tattoo marks to identify them.
Tattoos are visual markers for criminals to succumb to legal authority. But this is also a violation of human rights. In Christian religious culture, as Jane Kaplan pointed out, body markings are regarded as evidence of paganism. When the needle penetrates the prisoner's skin, it symbolically takes away the sanctity of their body. The soldering iron punishes the body, but the tattoo punishes the soul.
French tattoo history
However, when prisoners were tattooed, they have tattoos and even developed more aesthetic designs. The popularity of male tattoos in French criminal colonies and military prisons make them become another group symbol in the late 19th century.
In a photographic article, Jerome Pieirat and Eric Guillaume show how tattooing can be a compelling means of rebellious society, from the French underworld of the Virgin Mary. For some people, the "bad boy" of these tattoos has a certain exoticism, the tattoo of the Edith Piaf or the popularity of Papillon, a fantasy "memoir" of the former criminal Henri Charrière published in 1969. In this book, the protagonist's nickname comes from the butterfly - Papillon - tattoo on the chest: when he tries to escape from prison, this was a symbol of hope and freedom.
Since then, individuals and groups have continued to choose needles and inks as tools to litigate to the courts while expressing themselves with art.
French tattoo history
Tattoo as a symbol of the group
The late development of tattoos is an art of group symbolism. People use tattoos to build circles, from military groups, brotherhoods to locomotive parties. Tattoos convey something about the "edge" between yourself and the rest of the world. For some people, they are associated with mystery and darkness in the heart.
In view of the recent semitone program in English-speaking countries, this is a typical representative, and the semicolon tattoos have become a symbol of unity and encouragement with people suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts. Some commentators believe that the campaign is a short-lived trend and that dissemination through the hashtag has little effect on promoting the autonomy involved. But it seems to be.
The project semicolon has been popular with Twitter users, but it is not hype. Like many of their tattoo predecessors, what the participants take may be initially marked as "support " status, as well as a self-selected "LOGO" and collective hope statement.
As the French case shows, tattoos are firmly engraved in the history of modern culture. Nowadays, tattoos have become an accepted art act, and even shine in public welfare, becoming a fashion trend culture that transcends subculture.
