A Japanese Female Tattoo Artist’s Blog

Hi! I'm Ryoki a female tattoo artist from Osaka, Japan.
I'm a self-taught tattoo artist.
I've been in this business since 1999
and have had my own studio,'Al-Haut' since July 2001.

It's located in a trendy area for young people in Osaka called "American villege", in Shinsaibashi.

'Al-Haut' is named after Piseces in the Arabic horoscope.
I hope to appeal to people with this mysterious,exotic name.
(By the way, I'm a Pisces!!)

Basically, I have a distinctive style of tattooing called 'Fine-Line',
which uses an illustrative technique.

The outlines are not as bold and the overall impression is more like a water-colour painting.

'Fine-Line' technique is most suitable for sensitive detailed subjects.
I draw on nature for my inspiration and specialize in flowers and birds!
I’ve been told that my tattoos have a delicate and sensitive touch.

My second style has been influenced by my studies of the ancient cultures of the Orient and middle east at University.
It is a fusion of mysticism and mythology.
This fantasy style is also popluar with many clients.

I like to use 'Fine-line' for these images, too

I’m interested in tattooing non Japanese people too, so I started this blog in English
To introduce myself, my work ,and my daily life.

If you are interested and would like to post a comment,
I would be happy to hear for you.

My English isn’t perfect, but I will do my best,with a little help from my English teacher.

I hope you will forgive any mistakes and that my English improve in time.
I hope too,that you enjoy this blog, thanks for your support!

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
