The work of a traditional Japanese tattoo master in 1970 In 1970, photographer Martha Cooper came to Tokyo and immediately focused on documenting traditional Japanese tattooist Horibun I. Tokyo Tattoo 1970 is a book about the traditional art of tattooing and a portrait of a master artist. Japanese tattoo was a secret art form in the early 1970s. The masters of the traditional techniques were working in small studios, and tattooing was something for a distinguished few. No one could foresee the incredible rise of the art of tattoo internationally in the past 20 years. Horibun I worked with traditional Japanese methods, tattoos made by hand, with different sized needles bound to sticks which he dipped into coloured inks. His motifs were all derived from traditional Japanese legends. Horibun I was a rare tattooist, as he was open to letting a foreigner come to photograph him and his customers. Tokyo Tattoo 1970 tells the story of a Japanese tattoo master and his work. We see him at work, meet his customers, who show their tattoos, and follow Horibun on a pilgrimage to a holy Shinto shrine. Martha Cooper's pictures show the process of the tattooist's work as well as finished motifs from an era long gone. Tokyo Tattoo was Martha Cooper's first study of a subculture, which launched her on a ten-year-long immersion into the graffiti and street art of New York City
