These Japanese tattoos were from the mid-thirteenth century, and were thought to have been started as penalties for convicted villains like thieves and murderers, or indicated people belonging to the mafia.

Often the background is colored, even black, which further brings out the beauty of the drawings. These great Japanese tattoos often cover the entire body through the center of the chest over the sternum.

The most common themes are mythical animals, Buddhists, Suikoden scenes and geishas. (Source)
