Kazuaki Kitamura, also known by his alias Horitomo, is a contemporary Japanese tattoo artist.
Following his initial studies, Horitomo worked at various tattoo studios in Tokyo and Osaka and took part in tattoo conventions, including shows in Amsterdam and Spain. From 2001 onwards, he began to study traditional Japanese tattooing from a master of the style. By now, he’s a longstanding expert in both Western style and Japanese tebori hand tattooing.
We, of course, are particularly taken by his tattoo designs centring on ever so lovely cats – cattoo design!
