What The Japanese Think Of Tattoos | ASIAN BOSS


你是什么时候成为一名纹身师的? 我想应该是在1998年 或1997年 日本有很多的纹身师 在外面经营自己的店吗? 是的 虽然很难拿到经营许可证,但是现在有越来越多的纹身店 你为什么决定成为一名纹身师呢? 日本的动漫对我影响很大 很多动漫人物都有纹身 我不能通过画画谋生 所以我决定进入纹身业 所以你很热爱画画? 当然 之前我在工作中画画时 我会被骂 这让人很紧张 但作为一名纹身师,我在画时会受到赞誉 当你告诉别人你是一名纹身师时,别人是什么反应? 这要看情况 我有小孩 当我的老婆在幼儿园告诉其他父母我的职业时 他们没有很惊讶 他们没有问更多的问题 当别人看到你身上的纹身时,会有什么反应? 有时,他们看我就像是个坏蛋 甚至是罪犯 如果我露出我的纹身 我感觉我就会被盯着看 这种感觉不好 人们对我的态度取决于我穿长袖还是短袖,态度会完全不一样 人们对我的态度取决于我穿长袖还是短袖,态度会完全不一样 怎么会这样? 他们只是感到很害怕,他们试图不看你 但你感觉到他们在远处看你 但你感觉到他们在远处看你 我能感受到 所以很多人经过我时都会这样 你曾经想过纹身吗? 从没想过 我从年轻的时候开始 就想纹身 你有很多啊 是的 我有很多 我一直认为日本是“武士之国” 因此我有“宫本武藏”的纹身 我只是想活得和他一样 他来自农村 梦想着成为最强大的武士 他环游日本 他是我敬佩的人 当你向别人展示你的纹身时,人们会惊讶吗? 每次都会 总会是这种反应 我通常被认为是一个优秀勤劳的人 但当我换成短袖时 人们开始感到害怕 你为什么不想纹身? 我的父母很… 严格 如果我纹身,他们会杀了我 如果你的男朋友全身都有纹身,你会怎样? 在我们认识之前,我可能会躲着他 如果我们在一起后,他想纹身 我会告诉他不行 我父母不能接受 他不能给他们留下好印象 所以在日本 如果有纹身 会遭受怎样的歧视? 我会认为他们危险 避免和他们接触 这么说吧,如果你在政府或公司里工作 他们肯定会告诉你要把纹身盖住 甚至在我小的时候,当我去游泳池时 我总能看到一些警示牌 “有纹身者不得下水” 这就是我们对它有负面印象的原因 你看 酒店中有标志写着 “纹身者恕不接待” 我也不被允许进入公共澡堂 你认为他们为什么对纹身如此苛刻? 我猜是因为他们怕 他们感觉不舒服 这种偏见存在了很长时间 媒体从中也扮演了很重要的角色 将纹身和罪犯联系起来 他们在传播纹身的消极一面 为什么人们会认为纹身是如此不好的东西呢? 因为人们可能以为你是黑帮的成员 因为有纹身 意味着你是黑帮成员 是社会的败类 你认为纹身会对你的职业产生不好的影响吗? 在日本会是这样 在公司里 你是不被允许有纹身的 你的工作机会减少 我听说有个有纹身的人 当了公务员 但最后还是辞职了 因为他的同事几乎强迫他辞职 这是新闻上看到的 但如果一个外国人有纹身呢? 我会认为是理所当然的 因为他们不是日本人 这不是种族主义 但是当外国人有纹身时 他们看起来很酷 所以你是说 当他们不是日本人时 你对纹身的看法就会不同 是的 完全不同 在西方国家 纹身被认为是时尚的 但在日本不是这样 这是一个很大的不同点 我认为纹身在日本的发展方向不对 因此我们很难 像外国人那样随意纹身 什么样的顾客会来这里? 通常 会有很多工人来 也会有理发师 普通的公司职员 很难判断每天的顾客类型 但是 有越来越多的普通人加入进来 当然 我只是说我这边的情况 除了一些从事非法职业的人 我这也有从事正当职业的人进来纹身 尽管他们必须得在工作时藏起纹身 年龄范围是? 20多岁的人 也会有30多岁的人 工作稳定的人会有更多的纹身 事实上 我并没有接触到太多黑帮类的人 哪一种纹身最火? 动漫或者单色画类的纹身最受欢迎 动漫类的纹身需求量在增加 怎么样? 我很期待这一部分 能给我看一下你的腿吗?当然 就像现在这样 你是第一次来吗? 当然不是 我从20多岁的时候就来这里 你为什么要让Aki给你纹身 我们是在玩音乐的时候认识的 他在另一个乐队 但我们同场表演 当你在纹身时 有多疼? 痛只是暂时的 你不会想太多 因为纹身完成时带来的满足感很强 通常要纹多久? 多少小时? 这个会花5小时 5小时? 对 卫生有多重要? 非常重要 这些针都是一次性使用 我在顾客面前打开 你所有碰到的东西都要包好 我的身体很好 我相信他会做的很好 你认为纹身师需要有医生执照吗? 我不认为 因为你有医生执照 但这并不意味着你会画 上大学拿到一个学位 不会使你变成一个好的纹身师 两者之间没有联系 我并不认为医生会纹身 没那么简单 感觉他们把纹身师给理解错了 所以你认为 为什么法院认为有医生执照是必要的? 美容师用眼线笔来画眉 收到了很多投诉 正因为如此 医生执照变得有必要 而这也波及到纹身业 所以 当你发现 需要医生执照才能合法从事纹身业时 你是什么样的感受? 我无意非法执业 所以我很震惊 我不知道没有医生执照就是非法经营 但这是一块灰色区域 当社会可能不完全承认它的合法性 它也没有完全被批判 你知道 在日本 纹身师需要有医生执照吗? 我听过 我认为有必要 在刺画时 如果有什么东西进入到你的皮肤 会有一定的风险 只有这些有资质的人才能够做这些 这和医学不相关 所以我不认为医生执照是必要的 用针来刺身体 这对于我来说 很像是在做手术 纹身是艺术 但是 同时 卫生是最重要的 所以 与其说是医生执照 如果纹身师必须要有一个执照的话 我觉得要和医生执照有所不同 你认为公众对纹身的态度会改变吗? 我认为 会的 有纹身的人可能会在不久就能进入公共澡堂 到东京奥运会的时候 很多人会来到日本 所以我认为那时可能是改变的开始 我们的观念不会改变 但到我们小孩那一代 对纹身的刻板印象将会消失 我不知道未来会怎样 我认为在新一代人中会改变 纹身现在很时尚 比如说 你在脚踝有个纹身 显然 这就很时尚 所以如果那样的纹身持续出现 20到30年内 一切都会改变 你认为纹身会成为主流吗? 老实说 我并不知道它会朝哪个方向发展 我只是不知道 人们是否 会接受纹身 我感觉日本是唯一对纹身污名化的发达国家 我在想观念的改变何时会出现

  1. Using pneumatic tattoo machine to get those soft blends. Setting up with no gloves to get that nice staph infection.

  2. So many of my fellow Americans trip out over their unacceptance of tats, but I think they forget America was a lot like this a couple generations ago.

  3. Damn I was just thinkin about how my fave Japanese musician (with a LOAD of tattoos) name is Aki and then the tattoo artist is named Aki too 😳 freaky lmao

  4. As a American Asian from USA I will gladly walk down those Japanese streets on my vacation showing off my yakuza tattoo and pull hoes.

  5. Japan used to brand prisoners with tattoos. And Yakuza use tattoos as parts of showing that they are now outlaws. So you cant really blame general japanese when they have bad impression of tattoos.

  6. "Not to be racists but…"
    Don't worry, you are living in the most racist society in the developed world, no one will care if you say something mildly racist.

  7. The guy with the full sleeves gets it. A medical license to be a tattoo artist? Don't make me laugh. A pharmacist doesn't need a medical license. Why would a tattoo artist? Now, a tattoo license… now that's another discussion. I do think that some system to understand whether someone is actually qualified (can draw, sanitizes everything properly, uses the correct tools, non-toxic ink etc.) should be implemented

  8. wait. so having a tattoo means youre part of yakuza and a social outcast. which means youre going to be socially outcast?.. so its literally just salem witch levels of misconception.

  9. I mean you should atleast have the capability to apply first aid if you want to apply tattoo, but a medical license is a bit much

  10. A small cute tattoo at a covered body part is ok I think. But in general girls should refrain from wearing tattoo. It’s neutral to your image, at best.

  11. Was that Carlos Mencia at 6:27? Who knew he spoke fluent Japanese? Had to leave America I guess for being a joke thief.

  12. Well I'm half Japanese, I have a few Tattoos and I'm no Yakuza lol I've never had problems with my tattoos in Japan, only one shows, I've had a few weird looks but never any issues ! I'm wondering if the weird looks were because it was a visible Tattoo or if if it because it's a fox or both LMAO ! Dô demo ii ! Atashi no Tattoo-o aishimasu ne ! Kitsune no tattoo ga daisuki!!!! =^_^= <(^_^)> (^V^)

  13. tattoo aetist needs medical degree it's like I do bike so I need license or I cook at house so I need culinary degree NONESENSE

  14. In China , tattoo is more and more popular but if government you want to work in the department, you can’t have tattoo even scar. But in Brazil, it’s really common to see some police has tattoo

  15. So they know they have a negative perspective but they don't care and don't want to change it…okay

  16. I'm Korean with tattoo, living in Tokyo, and it's hard. Sometime, I wish I looked different from Japanese LOL.

  17. As far as the medical situation goes: I think it would be good to have someone with relevant medical training on hand during a session to oversee the process. That way the patient is safe and the artist can get on with their job.

  18. When a Japanese person is asked for their opinion they simply say what they think other Japanese people think. Opinions are generated based on the current interpretation of what it is to be Japanese. They identify with their nationality not their deep feelings.

  19. Considered doing something like this but featuring traditional irezumi artists instead. Pretty sure I would've had the same results either way, well done AB!

  20. I think it's sad that they don't accept tattoos while they have one of the best tattoo art forms on earth…

  21. I am Asian not into Tattoos, none of my friends or relatives have them, don't see why they are considered attractive personally.

  22. dude its so sad for him, if there is any way to give him a big up from me, give him dude, lot of respect for this tattooer
    I have a Majoras Mask tatoo on my back, and this idea come from the legend of zelda, a Japanese video game, it's sad that japanese cant do that without consequence on their lives :s

  23. I really want to see Japan but I’m 6’5” (198cm) tall, extremely white, and have a very large cross tattoo on my forearm. I feel like everyone would just stare…

  24. It's really interesting with the views towards tattoos with Japanese vs Foreginers. I know tattoos is a big thing with Yakuza so I can see the fear. My guess with foreigners the view is that it's more a pop culture, and generational thing so it isn't seen as a threat.

  25. 入れ墨を入れた人間が嫌われているにもかかわらず、今の時代に態々入れ墨を入れる人間は、社会のルールから外れた人間が多い。
    日本人はそれを個性ではなく、反社会的と見なす。

  26. "Not to be racist but when foreigners have tattoos, they look cool."
    Uhhh… actually that is racist. Or at least, it's double standard against your own people.

  27. Honestly, how would you think that they're Yakuza if these people have nerdy anime tattoos? What if a Japanese person has a Doraemon or Pokemon tattoo, would other Japanese people still think this person is intimidating? Makes no freaking sense.

  28. I think I would disagree that tattoos are that fashionable in the west. Whenever I see people with a whole freaking sleeve, its like, "why?"
    In general, I'd argue that people just don't judge based on looks very much in the west. Everybody looks so different and do so many weirder things anyway, we just get desensitized to seeing stuff like that.

  29. Many older generation Americans feel the same as Japanese on tattoos.

    My parents would be very disappointed if I got a visible tattoo.

  30. I’m Filipino and I guess to some people I look Japanese, I have two sleeves, my leg is also done and I have gauges, so when I went to Japan people would walk out of my way, no one wanted to sit next to me on the bus or train, people tried closing the elevator on me, I asked one man for direction on the train he ran away, i couldn’t hide my tattoos because it was summer time in Japan, humidity alone will kill you, to be fair I also met a lot of nice Japanese people who could care less, it’s a beautiful country and will definitely go back, I understand why their like that, it’s been ingrained in them at a young age tattoos are bad, maybe one day they will open their minds to it

  31. tattooist should try joining competitions or at least organize a local competition.. small ones to start of with and gradually become bigger. Not all people with tattoos are criminals! Most criminals in fact have no tattoos at all!

  32. One thing they missed is in Japan whether you are a foreigner or Japanese if you have tattoos you cant enter any place that has the no tattoos sign.

  33. In some western countries people have to cover their tattoos to do certain jobs e.g in teaching tattoos are usually frowned upon and teachers with them on their arms they would have to wear long sleeves/cover them also many other jobs for example you would not be able to have them on your face or exposed skin etc even police and public servants and many companies etc so the attitude can be the same as Japan depending on what job you are doing.

  34. It's nice to see what people think about tattoos. Still will hide mine. They not offensive at all but still, don't wanna get looked down upon

  35. Lol that’s was funny what that man said but one thing the Japanese do love western culture just as us westerners love Japanese culture but I was pleased to hear as a westerner I won’t get casted out for having a few tattoos lol

  36. Koreans are the same I think. Artists requires medical licences to practice and that’s why most (if not all) of them practice in full discreet. It took me almost a year to finally find the contact of the artist I admired and many more months to queue for my turn. N took me another few hours to find his workshop as it’s hidden in a ruins looking apartment, which was very well renovated in the inside.

  37. as an Ibanese ppl it is normal to having tattoos.Even my grandma have so much tattoos around her neck..in my place..it's the symbol of bravery or u have kill person[during primitive era haha] but don't worry nowdays we are not kill ppl or being a head hunter anymore haha..it's just during primitive era
    p.s.[pardon my grammar]

  38. A bit of honne/tatamae going on here. It's saying you can hang that Picasso in the outhouse, but don't put it in the livingroom, pleeeze!! Tattoos were entirely unacceptable in the USA when I was a kid. Gradually, gradually they became non-scary. It took around 40 years.and being a tattoo artist is knor some easy job. Imagine ZERO errors, everyone wants a masterpiece, and they don't want to pay much. And they try to Tell you , "It needs to be a little different.". I Did it for a year and QUIT; the problem was people management games.

  39. every winter i visit japan with my husband. even though we are wearing jackets my husband cant hide his tattoos in the neck. every time we ride the rain, the children are very afraid of my husband even though we are not japanese. but my husband looks like one. he cant even use the hotel gym.

  40. So if japanese people find foreigners with tattoos okay do you think foreigners will still have a hard time being tattooed and finding a job in japan?

  41. White people with tattoos are the white trash of their society. Japanese with tattoos are criminals. Polynesians with tattoos are cool.

  42. I love that not having a tattoo makes you rare these days.
    All my friends got tattoos when they were eighteen.
    It's now eighteen years later and they look like crap

    You don't graffiti on a temple…

  43. Tattoos in foreigners in Japan are like the pasta with tomato ketchup, I guess. Probably, if Italians cook pasta with tomato ketchup, Italians might think it would be unacceptable. But if Japanese cook pasta with ketchup, Italians might not care as much as Italians do. Italians might not want to eat it, but they don't care if Japanese eat pasta this way since it's different culture.

  44. Japanese who had tattoo tend not to be accepted by the society because they knew how the society would react and what the result would be from the beginning. Nevertheless, Japanese who got tattoo are the people who cannot follow the cultural rules, so other Japanese think that they are not acceptable. It's not the matter of freedom but the matter of culture, I guess.

  45. I love Japan so much, and watching this just made me sad. Now I feel like I won't be able to have a normal life there
