    @kikyou88 Japanese traditional tattoo is not for yakuza. Japanese fire
    fighters were getting full-sleve tattoo long time ago. again it is not the

    thats my problem coz i can even go to swimming pool in Japan. I would get

    Wouldn’t the Yakuza get really upset if they saw a non Yakuza wearing one
    of their patterns or symbols?
