Tebori Tattoos

I am happy to announce that I have been studying and working in the art of Tebori, a traditional Japanese method of tattooing. Tebori, a form of hand tattooing, uses a long steel needle instead of standard tattoo machine. The insertion of the steel needle creates a dense richness in color, as well as allowing for a wide gradation of colors. Following tradition, I handcrafted my needle tool. Outside of Japan, Tebori is rarely practiced. I’m so excited to bring this ancient experience to New Jersey!
