520    "The art of the Japanese tattoo has fascinated people 
       across the world for decades, but in Japan they are taboo 
       since traditional full body tattoos are associated with 
       the Japanese mafia - the Yakuza. Few organizations are as 
       feared as the legendary Yakuza.They have an impact well 
       beyond Japan, in real life as well as in popular fiction. 
       Yakuza Tattoo offers a unique insight into the dragons, 
       fish and gods that form the identity of the Yakuza.While 
       the motifs are inspired by the structure of the 
       organization, Japanese history and mythology, younger 
       members tend to add a contemporary touch to their body 
       art. Andreas Johansson is an academic and one of a small 
       number of persons that have been allowed to photograph and
       interview members of one of the world's most secretive 
       organizations. The book includes detailed images of widely
       different Yakuza tattoos. At one stage, right in the 
       middle of a gang war, Johansson frequented the shady 
       nightclubs, bars, restaurants and back streets of Yokohama
       in the company of a Yakuza boss. He also visited the homes
       of members of the Yakuza, documenting Yakuza symbols and 
       body art."--Bookdepository.com
