    Yuki Saito a.k.a Horitaro is a talented tattoo artist, specialized in traditional Japanese tattoo (irezumi, wabori) and in the technique of tebori. He started tattooing at age 17 and opened his own shop in 2002 after 5 years as an apprentice at Horihito's in Kawasaki. In 2014, he moved to the center of Hiroshima City and changed the name of his studio to HRSG Horitaro Tattoo Studio. That's why he needed new business cards and shop cards. I asked him if I could use one of his drawings as a graphic element, and he came back the next day with a beautiful ink drawing of a Koi Carp he had made during the night.
