Crab tattoo with an angry face (Heikegani)

Heikegani tatuaje


There are tattoos which represent more than we may see at first look. This is the case of one of them, it’s a crab in blue and red colors and on his back is the face of an angry man. The guard looks looks “nasty” and it is exactly the purpose of it.

This is a Heikegani, a type of Japanese crab whose shell you can see “the face of a person.” In Japanese folklore they say it is the face of a mad samurai.
