Gakkin’s works are inspired by nature, and by several ancient Japanese painters: the result is a contemporary and unique interpretation of traditional tattoos. After working in Kyoto he is now based in Amsterdam.

Nissaco is a tattoo artist from Osaka who also offers his own original take on the Japanese style, combining the traditional icons with geometric patterns. His style is powerful and experimental, despite the undoubted influence of tradition.

They recently works a lot in collaboration on creating new and beautiful artworks on skin. You can find them both at the London Tattoo Convention this year… so join us at the Tobacco Dock from 28th to 30th September!
