Nestled in a mountainous region in central Japan is a small town called Gifu and is the home of Horikashi’s private studio. Horikashi is a 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 over 10 years where he tattoos and paints full time. He is known for his large scale traditional Japanese body suits, and also for his incredible painting and art skills.
He has spent the last few years traversing the globe, spreading his art and knowledge of tebori at private studios in major cities and countless tattoo expos. In 2024, he returns to Authentink Studio, Sydney for a super limited guest spot.
This is your chance to experience freehand, tebori tattooing from a bonafide Japanese tattoo legend, from the comfort of your home city!
