The wonderfully intriguing wooden sculptures by Takeshi Haguri, with their fine tattoo details, were shared by Melina Bee in our Needles & Sins Facebook group, but in case you didn't catch it, here's just a taste of the artwork.

You can see more sculptures and close-ups of the work on the gallery page. As noted on that page, Haguri, born in 1957 in Nagoya, Japan, has been sculpting in wood mainly, using aluminium for outdoor works. The tattoos are largely acrylic paint, inspired by tattooed bodies found at Matsuri (Japanese festivals). I particularly love the movement of those tattoos on sculptures. A great marriage of body art and fine art.
