Tokyo Tattoo 1970



Martha Cooper's tattoo photographic project started while living in Tokyo with her anthropologist husband during the 70's. Including images with master tattoo artist Horibun, she captured rared moments of this incredible art during her stay at the Japanese capital city. However, the era's morals and taboos prevented her from exhibiting her achievent. So now, almost fourty years after, her beautiful shots are being featured in the amazing book titled Tokyo Tattoo 1970, while being exhibited for the first time at the Urban Folk Gallery in Brooklyn. Just beautiful.
