My bro just had his third tattoo, a Hanya Mask, done today at Johnny Two Thumbs, Far East Plaza... He's had all his tattoos done there by Chak tat.
This latest tattoo is a Christmas present to him from mom and dad. (I chose to get Moisturiser as my christmas present from them.. see what a boring big sister I am!)
The Hanya mask, with its horns and sharp fangs, is probably the best known of all Noh masks. This character was once a beautiful woman who fell in love with a priest. Her unrequited love causes her to turn into a monster who expresses the fury of a woman overwhelmed by jealousy and anger. It is also suppossed to ward off evil.
