Yakuza tattoos, also known as “irezumi,” are traditional Japanese tattoos that are commonly associated with the Yakuza, a Japanese criminal organization. These tattoos typically feature bold, black lines and intricate designs, such as dragons, koi fish, and other symbols that hold significant meaning in Japanese culture. Yakuza tattoos are typically large and cover a significant portion of the body. They are often done in the traditional Japanese hand-poking method using a needle and ink, and can take many months or even years to complete. Due to the association with organized crime, Yakuza tattoos are often seen as taboo and are not widely accepted in mainstream society.
