Kitsune (=fox) mask is a very popular tattoo motif. Kitsune is a mischievous creature in Japanese folklore — it has the ability of turning into a human and often tricks people. In Shinto — the indigenous Japanese religion — foxes are considered deities of fertility, rice, agriculture, and industry. If you visit Japan, you will probably stumble upon a shrine with multiple fox statues. You will notice that people often offer food and alcohol to the statues — they ask the kitsune deities to take care of their businesses.
Here at Japan Tattoo we have done a couple of foxes, all with a different touch. We still have some kitsune mask flash designs available too!
