One of the best books on the present condition of tattooing in Japan and the influence western style one point (and western influence in general, i.e. individuality) has had on it. McCabe enhances his clear, journalistic writing style with remarkable and colorful tattoo photographs, city settings, and vibrant flash from Japan's top artists. If you like tattoos this is a must read.

This book is not as pretty as some other tattoo books, but it more than makes up for outward appearances with the quality of its contents, especially in the form of in-depth, interesting, and informative interviews with traditional as well as modern-style tattoo artists. One of the best book about tattooing in modern Japan I've come across so far. A must-read.

This is an incredible book on the current state of Japanese tattooing. It covers all styles of tattooing from modern "one-point" to classic handpoked "tebori" style tattoos. Beautifully illustrated with hundred of color pictures; it is perfect for anyone interested in tattooing.
