Hirsohi-san, just as his friends, is not running for any social neither professional status. Living in what will be his tattoo shop, he is refurbishing everything by himself and stay with his tattoo table, his snowboard and the minimum to live with.
Almost too simple to be real, he is purchasing his dreams despite a family that rejecteted him, more obsessed with the notoriety of the genealogy rather than the fulfillment of their own.
These few photos tend to capture the transition caused by the constant Westernization of Asian countries. Demolishing the past to create the future, these new Samouraïs fighting for their passions are connecting different generations. Acting like a buffer and accepting the pain, they are building a larger “open-minded” society in which, not by constraints nor restrictions, everyone could find his place.
