Hi! First of all, I just wanna thank you for the amazing blog. It really is a great resource for irezumi and related stuff. It has been quite some time since I began following you and saw you growing... and it is just great to visit your blog, even if it is to just go through old posts. My question now : I don't think I've ever seen Agyo and Ungyo (the temple guardians) on tattoos. Do you know if there is any reason for them not to be tattooed or is it just a "coincidence" that they are not?
They can be tattooed. It’s just a coincidence you’ve never come across a tattoo of Agyo and Ungyo.
