Horiyoshi The Third: The Skin Carver video
Yesterday, the Nowness premiered its film on Horiyoshi III: a beautiful collage of tattoos, historical imagery and scenes from Yokohama (home to his studio) surrounding an interview in which the master explains symbolism in Japanese motifs, his methods, the culture of tattooing and how he wants to see greater acceptance of the art.
Entitled Horiyoshi The Third: The Skin Carver, photographer and director Johnnie Shand Kydd's not only looks at Horiyoshi's master craftsmanship, but also "examines the recent influence of tattoos in fashion while taking a look at the tattoo legend's latest clothing and accessories line."
