Asian tattoos are without question the most popular, and highest in demand when it comes to body art as a whole. This is not surprising given all of the rich and exquisite art that is steeped in history and deep symbolism.

They also have an exotic feel to them that I think is very attractive to many Westerners. I know that I have loved these tattoos for quite a while now.

There are some things you should consider before running out and getting an Asian tattoo, however. One thing is to properly do your research on the symbols and their meanings.
Asian-style tattoos are no longer created using tebori and are characterized by Chinese and Japanese imagery. Images frequently used in Asian art include cranes, dragons, fish, tigers, samurai warriors and Buddhist deities. Kanji (Japanese writing characters adapted from Chinese characters) are also a feature of Asian-style tattoos.
