Tattoos to commemorate the latest ruling that legalises ink in Japan, from anime to cuisine
Whole new world
No matter your personal stance on tattooing, there's no denying that body art has gained a new lease of life in recent years. What once bore negative connotations related to gang activity and delinquency is now viewed as a form of art — even in Japan, where it was mandated for years that tattoo artists need medical licenses to run their business. Well, no more. In a historic ruling just last week, Japan's Supreme Court has declared tattooing requiring "artistic skills different from medicine, and that it cannot be assumed that doctors do the act exclusively." A game changing moment, indeed. And what better way to celebrate this historic moment than by sporting some Japan-inspired ink? From sakura blooms to pop culture references, here's how you can commemorate the occasion.
