Experience: 1999

After a super successful first trip to Australia for the Sydney Tattoo Expo in 2018, and a 3 day guest spot at Authentink Tattoo Studio,Traditional Japanese Irezumi Tebori Master Horikashi will be coming back to visit us again! We are taking expressions of interest now for his next guest spot with us! Contact the studio with all enquiries.


Nestled in a mountainous region in central Japan is a small town called Gifu, that is home to Horikashi’s private studio. Horikashi is a Japanese tebori master; the ancient art of Japanese tattooing by hand.

After doing a 13 year apprenticeship under a Japanese tattoo master and family, learning the ways of tebori and also making the tattoo hand tools from scratch, Horikashi has owned his own studio for 10 years where he tattoos and paints full time. Known for his large scale traditional Japanese body suits, and also for his incredible painting and art skills, he is bringing his talents to Sydney, Australia for the first time since 2018. He has spent the last 5 years working and travelling all over the world.

This is a once in a lifetime to get a piece of tradition and history tattooed on your body by a living Japanese tattoo legend! Check out his tattoo portfolio below.
