Looking for Asian/ Oriental style tattoos with style beyond compare? Look no further.
Asian tattoos provide a look and feel beyond compare. The artistry, detail, and rich cultural heritage that stands behind the art is simply incredible, and the interpretations of the imagery powerful and mystical. Seen here, is the latest piece by master tattooist, Robert Pho. The depth, accuracy, and detail of the piece is strikingly incredible and it’s proof once again that there are levels to the game.
Regardless if they are Chinese, Japanese or Cambodian tattoos, they are commonly referenced to as Oriental tattoos and they have long been a raging phenomenon among tattoo enthusiasts of the western world. Chinese tattoos offer beautiful characters with a sense of the exotic and often much deeper meaning than that which lies on the surface.
Often referred to in China as Ci Shen (Or Wen Shen), which literally translates to “puncture the body”, tattoos have not always been looked upon with good grace, but the times are slowly changing and conceptual and societal perceptions are changing. Do some homework and you’ll find that the vast majority of Chinese groups have become more accepting, but for the minority, they are not only a tradition but a traditional part of life – take for example the Dulong and Dai tribes, along with the Li people of Hainan Island.
For these tribes and smaller part of the community, tattoos are an important part of life. They mark achievements, accomplishments and at times mark the entry into adulthood.
