Zen - Japanese Tattoo Designs

Beginner's Mind



Zen Buddhism


Each of our Japanese Calligraphy Designs is carefully researched and comes with independent references. So you can be absolutely sure our translations are correct. We want you to be as happy with the meaning as you are with Master Takase's beautiful artwork!

We also offer each design as original art on handmade Japanese Paper. Each piece personally brushed by Master Takase at the time of your order. These are individually and personally created works of art. We offer options for artwork unframed and framed on hand-made Japanese paper and, when appropriate, as beautiful Japanese scrolls.
