Artist's Description

Yakuza are members of transnational organized crime syndicates in Japan. Many yakuza have full-body tattoos (including their genitalia). These tattoos, known as irezumi in Japan, are still often “hand-poked”, that is, the ink is inserted beneath the skin using non-electrical, hand-made and hand held tools with needles of sharpened bamboo or steel. The procedure is expensive and painful and can take years to complete.6
