This spacious tattoo studio emphasises quality and originality, and has four artists on hand – this is fairly unusual since most Japanese studios are run by single artists and require appointments, but Red Bunny Tattoo offers same-day service. Any recommended themes? ‘Standard dragons or carp are nice, but yokai (monsters) have become more popular recently,’ says artist Akatsuki. ‘Sculptures at shrines and temples are also good inspiration for tattoos, so you might want to look for motifs there. Bring a picture and we’ll create a design for you. Tourists sometimes get their travel memories inked.’
Coin-sized designs from ¥10,000, postcard-sized from ¥50,000, larger sizes by the hour (¥12,000/hour). Visitors welcome, same-day appointments okay. English spoken.
