The origins of Japanese tattoos on the back
Surely you already know that Japanese tattoos on the back have a very peculiar origin (and that is why they are not very well seen in their country) , since, at the beginning (and so early: in the 18th century), criminals were they tattooed in this area of the body to hide the fact that they belonged to a criminal gang (the trick was to tattoo their backs and leave enough space in their arms to be able to roll up their sleeves without raising suspicions).

Horimono and tattoo artists: a shared ritual
People with Japanese tattoos on their back are known as horimono. The subjects they used to get tattooed on include delicacies like designs inspired by kabuki and Japanese or Chinese mythology.

The way of tattooing was also a ritual for the horimono and the tattoo artist . The way of tattooing of yesteryear was much more painful (and laborious) than it is now (before they even fainted!). Enduring the pain without question was a ritual that created a very special bond between tattooed and tattooed. The tattoo artist even allowed himself (albeit in a very discreet way) to sign his works on the tattooed skin.
