Amazing short film about Japanese tattoo artist Yoshihito Nakano aka Horiyoshi III. Nakano is based in the Japanese port city of Yokohama and hopes to pass his business on to his son.
Whilst Nokano uses an electric needle for the design outlines, he uses a traditional bamboo needle for the fills of colour on the tattoos. The film was shot by photographer Johnny Shand Kydd.
