Tokyo Hiro x Yamaha Guitars
News & Articles
Iconic tattoo artist Tokyo Hiro mixes his Japanese heritage with Los Angeles punk rock to create an original and refreshing style of his own. His Instagram feed is full of beautifully designed artwork and tattoos, and with his rock royalty family and personal style we knew this was a good fit for us.
Hiro was born in Tokyo where tattoos are still considered taboo today. As a young teenager, Hiro received his first exposure to the tattoo word through the music he loved – punk rock. This passion drove him to practice tattooing his friends with jailhouse machines until he eventually landed an apprenticeship with world-famous tattoo artist Bob Roberts at the legendary Spotlight Tattoo shop in LA.
