The Wider Image: Breaking taboos: Japan's tattoo fans bare their ink
Tattoos have been linked to criminals for as long as 400 years, most recently to yakuza gang members, whose full-body ink-work stops short of hands and neck, allowing concealment under regular clothes. The popularity of Western rock music, though, with musicians increasingly sporting tattoos, has eaten away at this bias. A court decision last year that tattoos were for decoration, and were not medical procedures, helped clarify their murky legal status and may signal a shift in attitude - perhaps leading the industry to regulate itself, giving it a more mainstream image. Referring to them as tattoos rather than "irezumi" - literally meaning "inserting ink" - as is becoming more common, may also help give them a stylish, fashionable veneer.

The Wider Image: Breaking taboos: Japan's tattoo fans bare their ink
Bookkeeper Mina Yoshimura, 40, who works at her husband Hiroshi Yoshimura's company, touches a new tattoo that Hiroshi Yoshimura got on the same day, at their home in Tokyo, Japan, October 2, 2020. "Well, if I had tattoos and he didn't, he'd be able to go places that I couldn't. But since we're both the same, we can go anywhere together. I think that's nice", said Mina, as she spoke about Hiroshi. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KYUNG-HOON TATTOOS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
