How To Make An 이레즈미 (Irezumi) Tattoo – The Easiest And Quick Way

Do you love Irezumi? If so, you’ve probably noticed Japanese cypress trees all over, especially in the summertime. The Japanese cypress is one of the most beautiful trees in the world, with its long trunk and canopy of green leaves.

The Japanese cypress tree is also known as the Japanese cedar apple tree or ikebana arbutus for its Japanese name.

In Japanese culture, ikebana is the art of arranging flowers, plants, and other objects in various designs and arrangements. The ikebana art of arranging flowers is called Irezumi, and it’s a traditional way of celebrating a bride’s arrival.

A perfect Irezumi tattoo is simple, beautiful, and — most importantly — symbolic.

Here’s how to get the perfect Irezumi tattoo.

Decide On The Meaning You Want To Connect With


First thing’s first. You need to decide what meaning you want to connect with your tattoo. This is the most important step because, without a clear idea of what you want, it’s very difficult to get inked.

Here are a few examples of how Irezumi tattoos can connect with different meanings:

Japanese cypress is a symbol of longevity and fertility, which make irezumi trees perfect for weddings.

A Japanese cedar apple tree is a symbol of wisdom and truth, which makes irezumi pipes a popular way to represent the meaning of “truth”.

Get To Know Your Adherents


Once you’ve connected the meaning of your irezumi tattoo with the irezumi tree, it’s time to get to know your adherents.

What are they? Adherents are people who share your religious or spiritual beliefs. While each religious group has different requirements, most adherents are people who practice that group’s religion or spirituality in their way.

  • You can get to know your adherents by:
  • Visiting their temples or churches
  • Looking at their sacred items, such as their incense sticks or irezumi bags
  • Insisting on carrying their bags or walking with them
  • Get to know your adherents by spending time with them and learning about their backgrounds and how they got to where they are today.

Research Your Subject Matter


Once you’ve gotten to know your adherents, it’s time to research your subject matter. This is the process of finding out everything you can about your desired subject.

This includes finding out about your desired subject’s culture, religion, and education system. You want to make sure you know the ins and outs of everything, so you can integrate the information into your tattoo.

Plan And Draw


Once you’ve found out everything you can about your subject, it’s time to draw your design. Remember to keep your design simple and use symbols that connect with your subject’s culture, religion, and education system.

You can use symbols from your desired religious group or symbols specific to your culture.

Keep in mind that every culture has a different way of doing things. That’s why it’s important to know your subject matter’s culture. If you’re American spending your vacation in Japan, you’ll want to take into account how the Japanese do things.

Get A Stylist


Once you’ve chosen the words, symbols, and designs for your 이레즈미 (Irezumi) tattoo, it’s time to get your tattoo artist’s approval. You want to make sure your tattoo artist is on board with the meaning of your tattoo.

Your tattoo artist should be able to explain the meaning in a few words and maybe even an artist drawing. When you’re looking for a traditional Japanese Irezumi tattoo, you want to make sure your artist knows the meaning of life.
