    This book is superior to the author's other japanese tattoo book. The text is not so dense, the author seems to have disposed of some of his bad habits from Bushido. Horiyoshi III is such a master, I would buy this book if there was no text, just the images. This book is superior to the author's other japanese tattoo book.
