This is a term that has been used as a shorthand in tattoos for all kinds of tattoo styles, from minimalist, to more modern, all the way up to abstract concepts and large-scale designs. We tend to use Japanese style tattoo as the general definition, but there are other different ways to say it, and there has not been much research done into it. It’s mainly a slang term for the kind of tattooing where you can work out how to make a design on the body. You are able to build a tattoo on a single piece of skin (ie a tattoo sleeve), and from there it’s pretty straightforward to make larger tattoo designs – this is a style commonly used for tattoos of animals and some people do even have the ability draw individual tattoos with a tattoo needle, which I’ve only heard of from the tattooing forums.
What is Japanese stylist style? I do a lot of both.
Japanese stylist style can be used to describe styles of tattooing that come down to the hand. There’s a lot of variation in this style, but the two common styles are the hand-painted style where you use a paintbrush to make designs on specific parts of the skin which you use to work some more abstract tattoos, and there’s the traditional style of painting them on a sheet of plastic.
What’s a Japanese tattoo?
A Japanese tattoo is a tattoo of the Japanese character for “saiyaki”, which in the Japanese language can literally mean ‘to be loved’. Like most words in Japanese, it is written in hiragana and kanji, with the word ‘sai’ referring to the physical characteristics of the character. Like an English word it can be used for good or bad (the English word ‘love’ is also used for Japanese character tattoos, as this is a way of expressing affection). The word ‘sai yaki’ is also used for Japanese tattoo shops, as they usually offer a wider selection of different Japanese tattoo designs.
When in doubt, or if you’re worried about the definition, don’t fret as it doesn’t have to say anything about how the tattoo is made – Japanese stylists will be able to tell you exactly what to expect.
