Recently we released our eighth issue of the zine, "UNREST//不安". One of the pieces in the issue was a short look at tattoos (入れ墨;irezumi) in Japan and how people perceive them, with a focus on the unrest they cause. You can read the story here.
This is actually part of an ongoing project we're working on related to tattoos. If you have tattoos, or you'd like to share your thoughts on them, we are conducting a very short survey on the topic. We want all kinds of opinions, so don't be shy! You can take the survey here. Thanks!
Taboo was based on a submission that we received from photographer Mike Dinsmore, part of a series called "Conceal and Ignore."
