37 Japanese Style Tattoo Artists To Follow On Instagram

A Visual Guide

Whether you’re a fan of Japanese tattoo designs or not, we must admit that this tattoo style represents a great challenge for every tattoo artist.

The Japanese culture offers a huge variety of tattoo designs making them one of the most sought after tattoo styles in the world.

Analyzing the rich composition of the Japanese tattoo designs, the use of contrasting colors, the precise line work and the body placement, we’ve come up with a compelling guide about the best Japanese tattoo artists to follow on Instagram.

One of the most common issues with large scale Japanese tattoos is the incoherence of the entire design, as a consequence of crowding multiple elements into one piece.

Therefore, when selecting the best Japanese style tattoo artists to follow on Instagram, we took in consideration the readability of the composition, the way the design interacts with the human body anatomy and the clean outlines.

Studying the work of more than 200 Japanese style tattoo artists, we hope that this article will help you choose wisely the artist of your next Japanese tattoo.
