It comes as no surprise anime tattoo art is a huge thing. Anime is a word describing Japanese animation – an art style which is very recognizable because of its specific aesthetics, which are very different from those in Western cartoon animation.
In Japan and in general actually, anime fans are not necessarily children. In fact many adults love anime and this is the reason why more and more people are getting anime tattoos. Anime is not always a comedy kind of entertainment. Anime movies can be dramatic, romantic or terryfing. We guess there’s no need to even mention the porn side of anime also known as hentai.
Anime movies cannot be compared to Western animation, mainly focused over children and youth audience. Japanese animation illustrates Eastern culture, religion and beliefs, more pointed towards adults. You can see men with anime tattoo sleeves or grown up women crazy about anime tattoos.
How crazy you should be to get an anime tattoo?
Well, just enough as to have a tattoo on the first place. Anime is an art form originating from Japan, therefore anime tattoos are interpretation of this kind of art. What differs anime from other art styles are the bright and intense colors, used for the hair and clothes of the characters.
Also those big eyes, melodramatic emotional expressions and child-like faces. All of these features make sure your future anime tattoo will be quite memorable and expressive.
Tattooed manga characters from the long history of Japan animation are not something new to the tattoo scene. The list of characters who have already become worldwide pop culture icons is huge.
