Horiren's journey leading her to become a famous tattoo artist is a very interesting one. Though none more than the interesting attributes of her tattoo artwork itself. After graduating from the Nippon Institute of Design and beginning her career designing computer games, she ventured forward to develop a professional career as a self-taught tattoo artist. She received her first ever tattoo in Australia and it was this occurrence that inspired her to consider what it would be like to design her own tattoos. Go Australia! If we can even claim we are one tenth responsbile for the introduction of Horiren to the tattoo world, that's something to shout loudly about.

Now, many dedicated years later, she is officially known and refereed to as Horiren the 1st. Seriously, how fucking cool can one lady get?  Specialising in traditional japanese traditional style tattoos, Horiren has made one hell of a name for herself as an artist.

On Thursday, Horiren 1st will be demonstrating her Tebori tattoo style during the exhibition launch by her official photographer, Hara Hiroyuki at Lust For Life.  She will also be accompanied by her former apprentice, Horimasu who specialises in Japanese style pieces using tattoo machine.

Amazingly, this is a free event. Don't miss it!
