We’re also presenting you with the meanings and symbolism for each element, as there’s nothing worse than getting a tattoo you don’t understand.

Skulls: While the skull gets a bad rap in western culture, Japanese tattooists intended skulls to be a positive representation of the natural life cycle; representing the greatest change one can experience – death.

Chrysanthemum: The Kiku has a deep history tracing back to the seal of the Emperor himself. The flower is portrayed as a symbol of perfection – usually depicted with petals radiating like flames from the sun, the centre representing the Emperor’s status in the social climate.

Demon: The Oni is often depicted as a malevolent horned character. Fearsome and supernatural, they are said to represent a belief in the spirit world in which Oni carry out the role of punishing the unjust and evil. Oni, are often confused with the popular Hannya Mask which a traditional Japanese prop used by actors of Noh theatre in the 14th century.
