Yallzee's Demonic Hannya Tattoos

in both American Traditional tattooing and black and grey tattooing there is one image that dominates over all others—the skull. In Japanese tattooing there are some skulls, but the real equivalent would be the Hannya mask. A Hannya is representation of a jealous female demon, often with horns. While the masks are terrifying, they are are also forlorn and conflicted. People say that this shows the complexity of human emotions. Enjoy this gallery featuring some of the most impressive Hannya tattoos we have seen, curated by Yallzee.
