The geisha has become a symbol bearer of traditional Japanese values, and this is why the geisha tattoo has become so important, synonymous with beauty and elegance, peace and serenity. They embody the value of feminine beauty, dressed in kimonos sumptuous, perfectly combed and groomed.
They are often mistakenly associated with a prostitute. Geisha takes its name from the word art. In Japan, the geisha is a professional and highly qualified woman whose occupation is to entertain men with singing, dancing and with the ability to make conversation and create a relaxed atmosphere. Her white mask is used to hide any emotion, increasing the intrigue of mystery and power.
On her feet she wears wooden sandals which oblige her to always make small steps and she holds a fan in her hands. The geisha is unattainable for most people, representing dreams, aspirations, ambitions and desire. The color with which the subject is most often combined is red (which is associated with fertility) and the pink of cherry blossoms.
