"Yakuza Tatoo" book cover
Other
Join us for a book launch and discussion with Andreas Johansson who has recently published a book about Japanese tattoo.

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. Yakuza Tattoo offers a unique insight into the dragons, fish and gods inspired by the structure of the yakuza and form the identity of the organization.

 

Andreas Johansson has a PhD in the History of Religions. He works at Lund University and is a fellow of Linnaeus University. He has a special interest in the religions of Asia and has conducted a number of field studies in South Asia, analyzing religious terminology and symbols used by non-religious organizations. Johansson is also an avid photographer andreasljoh.com
