Japanese back piece tattoo. Horiyoshi 3
“108 Heroes of the Suikoden” (aka “The Water Margin”) is one
of the classic heroic Japanese tales, based on a Chinese novel.
It was not very popular when its first translation came out,
but after it was published with illustrations by ukiyo-e darling
Kuniyoshi, this changed completely.
