It means No Missing Fingers or Tattoos.
Tattoos have a long and complicated history in Japan. Although many people in the West have been getting Japanese calligraphy tattoos in recent years, traditional Japanese tattoos are in fact very intricate designs. Often, a Japanese tattoo takes up a large part of a body, such as the full back or even the entire body. This style of tattooing is very impressive and detailed, although there are mixed reactions to tattoos in the East. History of Japanese Tattoos In order to understand the cultural significance of Japanese tattoos, one must look back more than 2,000 years. The first written accounts of tattooing in Japan date back to 297 A.D. Artifacts with markings on menâ€™s faces, presumed to be tattoos, date back even further (some as old as 5,000 B.C.). Over the years, tattoos have fallen in and out of favor with the Japanese people. During the 7th century, much of Japan began to adopt Chinese trends and ideals. Since the Chinese people looked down upon tattoos, Japan saw a similar trend with public opinion. Suddenly, tattoos were considered inappropriate by the upper class and, years later, people began to be punished through tattoos. This continued for generations until tattoos were greatly associated with criminals rather than a decorative art form. Penal tattooing was issued to very serious criminals and would sometimes be placed on obvious areas of the body, such as the forehead. Different regions of Japan adopted various forms of penal tattooing. Sometimes, a person was tattooed for merely being an outcast rather than a hardened criminal. Those people would be easily spotted and prevented from participating with normal community life. By the late 17th century, attitudes toward tattoos changed again in Japan. No longer were tattoos only associated with outcasts and criminals. Instead, people began to appreciate tattoos as art. Large, elaborate designs of animals and landscapes were being used to decorate people. Those who had been punished with tattoos were also covering those markings up with colorful, larger decorations. The public opinion of Asian tattoos has waxed and waned in recent years. This form of body modification has always been most popular with the working class, such as firemen. However, Japanese gang members (known as Yakuza) also adopted tattooing as a part of life. Although many citizens appreciate traditional Japanese tattoos, more conservative Japanese people associate the art with troublesome Yakuza.
