30. Takahiro Kitamura on Jakoh
My name is Takahiro Kitamura, I’m the curator of Perseverance, and this tattoo by Jakoh is just beautiful. It is everything a Japanese tattoo should be. I remember when the client came in for his photo session, and there were about ten of us there, ten tattooers, and all of us, our jaws just dropped – we were floored. Jakoh is certainly a rising star and his work is sublime. And this is definitely one of my favorite pieces in the whole show.
