  Irezumi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Until the Edo period (1600-1868CE) the role of tattoos in Japanese society fluctuated.
It is known for certain that irezumi became associated with firemen, dashing figures of bravery and roguish sex-appeal who wore them as a form of spiritual protection (and, no doubt, for their beauty as well).
After an initial consultation during which the client will discuss with the tattooist the designs he (again, clients are most frequently male; though women do wear traditional irezumi, they are most often the wives or girlfriends of tattoo artists) is interested in, and work begins with the tatooing of the outline.

 Eternal Images - Irezumi - Japanese Tattooing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The Japanese word irezumi (入れ墨, 入墨, 文身, 剳青, 黥 or 刺青) refers to the insertion of ink under the skin to leave a permanent, usually decorative mark, in other words, tattooing.
It is generally agreed, however, that the Ainu tattoo tradition is unrelated to the development of irezumi.
Traditional irezumi is still done by specialist tattooists, but it is painful, time-consuming and expensive: a typical traditional body suit (covering the arms, back, upper legs and chest, but leaving an untattooed space down the center of the body) can take 1-5 years of once-per-week visits to complete and cost more than US$30,000.

 ORIENTAL IREZUMI AND OCCIDENTAL TATTOOING IN CONTEMPORARY JAPAN
Since irezumi of the geishin cover-up and the irebokuro were associated with the criminal community and the under class anyway, prohibition was often ineffective and in the periods between prohibition, the art flourished.
I interviewed and spoke to a variety of people with tatu and irezumi in an attempt to discover if their motivations were similar, whether they had intended to exclude themselves from mainstream society and whether they felt that their tatu or irezumi had a purpose.
Since irezumi is a very traditional form of expression in Japan, there are those who get irezumi for nationalistic reasons and I have met both yakuza and non-yakuza who felt that in receiving irezumi rather than tattoo they were making a commitment to the traditions of Japan.
