Irezumi Japanese Tattooo Artists

Japanese tattoos are distinctive, intricate and carry a lot of meaning. Known as Irezumi, which means ‘inserting ink’ in Japanese, these tattoos are today enjoyed and adorned by people from all over the world. Traditionally, Japanese tattoos are applied by hand using wooden handles and metal needles. At Bloodline Tattoo, we offer you the option between a traditional tattoo gun or the Thai variation of the Japanese equipment – the bamboo tattoo stick.

Irezumi tattoos, or Japanese tattoos, are known for their bright, bold colours that juxtaposed against strikingly dark grayscale backgrounds. They usually symbolise something or tell a story, many inspired by the ancient tales and mythology of the region, depicted in artwork and literature for generations.

Our artists, who are the best tattoo artists in Phuket, are experts at the art of applying ink in the Japanese way. From koi fist to cherry blossoms and Japanese folk heroes, their abilities are almost endless. Bring in a picture or get inspired in the studio and find the Japanese tattoo that tells a story that resonates with you.

Although very detailed and often covering the whole body, or large parts of the body at least, these tattoos must be performed by a specialist. At Bloodline Tattoo, our professional artists are also able to recreate exactly what you want. Sit back and enjoy the amenities of the studio before finally, once a design is decided upon, sit on the bed and let our experts get to work. Each artist is hand-picked for the job, meaning whatever piece of art you want inked onto your skin, we ensure you only have an expert holding that gun.
