tattoo

We talked about tattoo in the last English class.
I don't have any tattoos on my body. And tattoo in Japan reminds me of gangsters, but I learned the custom of making tattoos was very old. For example, it was practiced in Egypt thousands of years ago. And Okinawa and Ainu used to have its custom, too.

Ainu women used to have tattoos even around on their mouths imitating men's mustache as well as their hands.

These days some young people have them for just decoration or fasion in the world. On the other hand some people still preserve the tradition through successive generations. Of course there are some gangsters having them, too.

There are many hotsprings facilities which turn down people who have tattoos in Japan. And it's being increasingly globalized now. Many travelers visit hotsprings. It's difficult to distinguish gangsters from others nowadays. Of course we don't want to approach gangsters, but I think it will be a difficult problem in the future among those facilities because it could be a kind of discrimination.

I heard of many non-Japanese guests who were not turned down for tattoos but had to wear huge bandage or something similar.

Hi Always visiting,

Oh, I didn't know that. I wonder if the facilities prepare huge bandage for the guests.
