Chinese Lion/ Foo Dog Prints:

Chines Lions are my favorite motifs in Japanese tattoos. The color print is by Kuniyoshi, and the rest are by Hokusai. Love the detail and movement put into these prints, and they’ll always be good for inspiration of tattoos!

The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife (蛸と海女 Tako to ama, literally Octopus(es) and shell diver), also known as Girl Diver and Octopi, Diver and Two Octopi, etc., is an erotic woodcut design of the ukiyo-e genre by the Japanese artist Hokusai.
