How much do you know about Tibetan Symbols? Do you tattoo them? Or are you planning to get one tattooed?

The Encyclopedia of Tibetan Symbols and Motifs

It is not only a matter of copying Shige’s, or Philipe Leu’s work (I.e. skulls) as it is often seen, You also have to understand the symbolism and the culture that is represented, the how and they why! So get this book if you want to get anywhere near some kind of serious learning phase. We’ve got it, and we wouldn’t get rid of it for sure! This book does not only serve as an introduction, but also will remain a valuable source of information and inspiration, probably for the lifetime of your tattoo studio. It also serves as a good introduction to anyone who wishes to study Buddhism, or become Buddhist.

Muerte is a celebration of the master of black ink, Mike Giant. He has achieved fame as a graffiti artist, illustrator and tattooist. Whether his medium is concrete, paper or skin, his signature style is made up of equal parts Mexican folk art and Japanese illustration – is unmistakable. Latin and Hispanic culture play a major role in the execution of his silhouettes, which resemble buxom pin-up femme fatale’s and assorted other voluptuous characters, often with skulls and animal tentacles.

Horiyoshi III’s Horikitsune aka Alex Reinke

:: From Holy Fox Tattoo


For centuries the art of Irezumi is produced and developed. This traditional japanese craftsmanship is a pure form of oriental art and it is in complete harmony with the human body and soul. It underlines the individuality of its wearer and is of high precision and quality. With its histotic figures and other traditional motives the japanese tattoo is no trend phenomenon but a high class piece of art of stunning beauty. Alex Reinke aka Horikitsune is the only european who was taken as a student of the world famous tattoo artist Horiyoshi III in Yokohama, Japan. He reached mastership in 2001.
