TABOO: Ukiyo-e and the Japanese TATTOO

Shaped by centuries of controversy, the Japanese tattoo embodies the forbidden and the dissonant. Simultaneously representing both belonging and non-conformity, they are complicated cultural symbols. Ronin Gallery's exhibition TABOO: Ukiyo-e and the Japanese Tattoo explores the verboten world of irezumi(Japanese tattooing) across history and medium.


This exhibition was on view in the gallery from 3/2015 - 5/2015.
