Japan Is Trying To Destroy Tattoos

Right now, there are some people in Japan who appear to be doing their best to kill off tattoos.
This past April, Osaka’s biggest tattoo convention, was suddenly canceled a week before it was to be held. Some after, several tattoo studios in Osaka were apparently raided, and in August NHK reported, five tattooers were arrested for “tattooing 11 people without a physician’s license.” Yes, it actually said that. The tattooers were arrested because they were not doctors.
Instead of paying his 300,000 yen (US$2,445) fine, Taiki is taking this fight into the Japanese courts, posing the question as to whether or not his job is a crime. The month, procedures begin for a public trail. Taiki has created a Facebook page called Saving Tattooing in Japan, hoping to garner support for this cause.
