Horisaru (彫猿 ) Video Interview

Horisaru (彫猿 ) Video Interview

Join us in the fourth episode of The Figure Behind The Ink interview series, where we interview respected traditional Japanese tattooers, Horishi (彫師), from around the world.

We will be diving to unparalleled depths in traditional Japanese tattooing (Wabori/Horimono) interviewing coverage. The fourth Horishi to be interviewed for this new video and audio series is none other than @geoffhorn_soos (彫猿 / Horisaru).

Learn how Horisaru became the only non-Japanese member of the powerful Horikyo family, directly studying under Horikyo, and how he now carries the Horikyo family banner in New Jersey, where he tattoos with both machine and the traditional Tebori hand-poke method.

@geoffhorn_soos is based out of Woodland Park, New Jersey. His tebori work bring to life the power of the Horikyo family style infused with Horisaru's own character. Visit his IG to see more of his works.
