About Kaname

For over 30 years, Kaname has honed his skills as a Japanese tattoo artist, using his work as a medium of expression that has taken him and his ink around the globe. His inspiration comes from the ancient concept of 'Wa', a word that connects early Japanese culture to the longing of Harmony in both himself and his work. A true hero of Japan's underground tattoo art culture, Kaname has had his skin in the game for over 30 years (pun intended). Roark is proud to release this limited capsule of work designed by Kaname as our latest featured Artist In Residence.
