Tebori is the traditional Japanese hand-poking method of tattooing. Some say that these tattoos are the best and brightest tattoos achievable on earth. They are also slow, and can be agonozingly painful. Although some people report that the hand-poking method is virtually pain-free by comparison to tattoo machines. Tebori style tattoos are often seen as full body suits on the japanese and can take several years to complete.
