What is Anime? 

Anime is a style of Japanese film and television animation typically aimed at children as well as adults.

Anime often has stark, colorful graphics depicting vibrant characters in action-filled plots, often with fantastic or futuristic themes. 

Anime dates back to the start of the 20th century, with the earliest verifiable films dating from 1917.

In 1917, the first professional and publicly displayed works began to appear with animators such as Ōten Shimokawa, Seitarō Kitayama, and Jun'ichi Kōuchi (considered the "fathers of anime") producing numerous films. 

In the 1980s, anime became mainstream in Japan, experiencing a boom in production with the rise in popularity of anime like Gundam, Macross, and Dragon Ball.

Anime's popularity began to spread to the West in the late 1980s and early 1990s, thanks to series such as Akira, Sailor Moon, and Dragon Ball Z.

The widespread availability of these shows on television networks and the advent of home video distribution played significant roles in its growing fanbase.

By the 2000s, with the rise of the internet and streaming services, anime had firmly established itself as a beloved and influential genre worldwide, captivating audiences with its unique storytelling and dynamic visuals.

What Are Anime Tattoos?

One of the newest trends in the tattoo world is the Anime Tattoo. Anime tattoos are a new and vibrant style of body art inspired by Japanese animation. 

These tattoos often feature bold, colorful designs that capture popular anime series' dynamic characters and fantastical elements. 

As anime continues to grow globally, fans are choosing to have their favorite characters and scenes inked onto their bodies.

Some tattoo artists have even made the Anime Tattoo their chosen niche, finding great success designing and tattooing variations of people's favorite characters, iconography and landscapes.
