Waboripedia brings the true meanings and stories behind traditional Japanese tattooing, also known as Wabori (和彫り), in a high-quality book format.

Through coverage of over 100 figures, learn about the Japanese folktales, legends, and history of the figures and symbols featured in Japanese tattooing. Learn about what accompanying pieces, backgrounds, colors and placements make historical sense - maintaining the Japanese aesthetic and balance that uninformed practitioners might miss.

Through carefully color-restored illustrations of artworks - such as the ukiyo-e works of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, Utagawa Yoshitsuya and others - experience the art that gave life to the origins of Japanese tattooing and that continue to inspire people all across the world to this day.
