Akimitsu Takagi (1920-1995) is one of the greatest Japanese mystery writers of the 20th century. Mad about tattoos, he documented the tattoo scene in Tokyo in the 1950s and 1960s. Forgotten in the writer's library, unknown until their discovery in 2017, these photographs consecrate him as one of the most important witnesses to the history of tattooing in 20th century Japan.

By photographing the greatest Tokyo tattoo artists of the time and their clients with a medium format camera (Rolleiflex type), Takagi created an archive that is as rare as it is unedited. Few images and faces from the Shôwa era (1926-1989) have come down to us, shedding light on this art of the shadows, forbidden until 1948. This invaluable testimony has never been published. So that it can be shared with as many people as possible, it now needs your help to become a book. It will not be done without you.
