Kintaro Publishing

In 2011, we started a new world, and we built our publishing house from the ground up with the encouragement of some of our favorite artists.

A Japanese folk hero known as “Golden Boy” inspired us to name our publishing house Kintaro Publishing. His story is a story of inspiration telling the audience to pursue their desire with utmost bravery passionately. This was fuel for our imagination, and we also hoped that the books we print would do the same to the path of people they cross.

Today, we independently publish art books and high-quality prints which showcase tattoo arts crafted from renowned talents and contemporary creativity.

There is one thing that is our hope, and it is that within these pages, you find that art that inspires you to move out from your shell and explore the world with bravery. To discover what is beautiful to you and to make it a part of your life in a way that is unique.
