[Feature] The demand for tourists who want to get tattoos in Japan has increased significantly

The author of this article has no tattoo. There is no particular reason to ink it or not. That is because there is no culture in Japan. What about your country?

I asked my friends for an interview regarding contributions. Thank you for the kind person who responded to the interview. The interview was online. #Stay home

In this article, I’m going to feature Miho lives in Japan. She published the first tattoo magazine in Japan. She also opened a blog based on her own experience that She could not use public facilities with tattoos in Japan. Tattoos are not illegal though.

tattoo policy: Employees are able to openly display their tattoos at work.

For example, Seattle coffee chain Starbucks respected employee personality and accepted tattoos. https://stories.starbucks.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Dress_Code_Look_Book_-_US_English.pdf

Japanese bathing facilities : We refuse entry. (+50%)

Me : I think there are many tourists who want to get tattoos in Japan.

Miho : The demand for tourists who want to get tattoos in Japan has increased significantly in recent years. A small souvenir tattoo is called “Souvenir tattoo”, and it is popular to feel free to put on a tattoo to remember a trip. Also, people who enjoy “Tattoo Tourism” who come to Japan for the purpose of putting in tattoos. If you want to get tattoos in Japan, it’s useful to know Japanese tattoo studios.

川崎さん:日本でタトゥーをコレクションしたいという観光客の需要は近年とても増加しています。お土産感覚で入れる小さなタトゥーのことを〝スーベニア・タトゥー〟と呼び、旅先での記念や思い出に、気軽にタトゥーを入れるのが人気です。また、観光のついでではなく、タトゥーを入れことを目的として来日する〝タトゥーツーリズム〟を楽しむ人も珍しくはありません。どちらにせよ日本でタトゥーを希望するのであれば、日本のタトゥースタジオ事情を知っておくと便利です。事前に確認をしておけば心の準備も整います。

Me : Is Japanese Tattoo Studio Safe?

Miho : In Japan, every place is kept clean. All tattoo artists maintain hygiene and provide a safe and secure environment.

川崎さん:日本はあらゆる場所が清潔に保たれた国です。同様に、プロフェッショナルとして活躍するタトゥーアーティストたちはみな衛生管理を徹底し、安心・安全な環境を提供しています。
