Neo-traditional Japanese tattoos are a modern evolution of traditional Japanese tattooing. Designs generally feature samurai, koi fish, dragons, flowers, ocean waves, and other Japanese motifs. One concept within the realm that you have seen and are consistently drawn to, are demon masks known as Oni. Oni masks (aka demon or ogre masks) are a type of face mask worn in various traditional ceremonies and performances throughout Japan. They are typically made from textile such as leather and are decorated with spikes, horns, or other adornments that make them resemble the heads of evil spirits. As a tattoo they quite striking and incite curiosity and conversation. Adrenaline Vancouver’s neo-traditional Japanese style tattoo artist, Ron Smith, is one of the most celebrated local tattooists in the genre. So to answer your call to see examples of Japanese Oni mask tattoo designs we have pulled a few samples from his relentlessly growing portfolio to serve as inspiration for your own piece. Without further ado, let’s review!
Examples of Japanese Oni Demon Tattoo Designs Done at Adrenaline Studios to Inspire Your Own


Oni Mask on the Hand

Japanese Oni masks depict the fierce-faced demons that are said to subdue and scare away evil spirits. It makes sense to have a tattoo of one (or two) visible at all times. Where better to make this happen than on your first?

Armed and Dangerous

The arm is a symbol of strength, which is an ideal placement for a big and bold red-faced (the traditional color choice) Oni mask. Send evil spirits running for the hills with the flex of your snarling forearm and/or bicep.

Chest Piece

The chest area provides a larger canvas, and allows you to incorporate other neo-traditional Japanese elements such as flowers, tassels, or other ornamentations for the mighty Oni.

Dragon Oni

While Oni masks typically take on a human-esque demon appearance, it is not uncommon to see them represented as piece dragon faces too. Choose a color that resonates best with your personality for added effect.
