Horiten (初代彫天) Video Interview

Join us in the sixth 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 sixth Horishi to be interviewed for this new video and audio series is none other than @horiten1 (Horiten I).

Learn how this legendary Horishi got her start in Wabori, developed her own style, joined the Horikyo family, and is taking over the Kansai region of Japan with her powerful Horiten family style.

@horiten1 is based out of Nara, Japan. The Horiten family style is steeped in tradition and power. Visit her IG to see more of her works.
