WHAT IS TEBORI ?

TEBORI is the traditional method of tattooing by hand poke in Japan. 

Which consists of using wooden or metal stick with a set of needles fastened to tip to insert ink into the skin. 

The technique provides a unique look to tattoos making them unusually vivid and life like.

DJARI BOKASHI

Dot shading by hand poking in the Tobori method. This is called ``Djari Bokashi`` in traditional Japanese tattoos mainly back ground. However, there is no mention about this method in literature and I didn't know how it was used.

As a result of experimenting with a lot of different needle groupings.

I succeeded in the developing my own original groupings needle. I gave this technique the name `` Djarimasa Style``

It has a very unique texture!!
