"Parts of Japan gave criminals tattoos on their arms. Many are simple lines around the arm. On the bottom line, the third left, I can see the sign of “悪”, bad in Japanese. This was Kishu´s (紀州/now Mie and Wakayama prefecture) tattoo.
Really cool art! I love how it shows the human skeleton/essence inside of the wolf outer form, thus showing a werewolf, and how a person is still underneath but the angry, uncontrollable wolf is in control and on the outside.
