If you’re looking to decorate your body with original, meaningful designs, Shiryudoh might just be the right tattoo studio for you. Located in the quiet residential area of Kakinokizaka, Shiryudoh is a studio with a unique philosophy. Before opening the studio, Ron, the owner, visited historic ruins around the world. He travelled extensively through Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, and it was in Bali, Indonesia, where he discovered his passion for tattoos. There, he sought to combine his extensive knowledge of ancient Buddhist iconography and traditional patterns with body art. The result is a unique style that blends Ron’s archaeological studies with intricate designs. Bookings are essential, so visit the website and fill out a simple reservation form.

Tattoo Studio Seek
Tattoo Studio Seek excels at many different styles of body art, including Japanese wabori, American traditional, tribal and more. The studio has three locations—Ikebukuro, Roppongi, Shinjuku—and each location offers different services to ensure all needs are met. Horisho, the owner of Seek, has nearly 20 years of experience and can be found at the Ikebukuro shop. He specializes in traditional Japanese style tattoos, and many of his pieces are large-scale. If that’s not your thing, head to either Roppongi or Shinjuku where the artists’ styles are more varied. The Roppongi shop is staffed by English-speaking artists so, if the design you had in mind requires a little explaining, you won’t have to worry about miscommunication. From big to small tattoos, in whatever style you desire, Tattoo Studio Seek has just the right artist for you. Reservations are recommended.
