the brasilian-japanese tattoo artist jun matsui is the undisputed master of tribal tattoos. he started working from his apartment with a couple of friends, because he needed some money. today people come from all over the world to the luz shop. you have to book six-months in advance. a tattoo as big as your fist costs around 30.000 yen. but most of the time matsui works on full body-tattoos, which have a long tradition in japan. those who get a full body at luz, belong to the so-called family. the family members like to chill out in the shop and café next door. luz opens daily from 12.00 - 20.00. jun’s tattoos are printed on t-shirts, too.
