TATTOO STUDIO Ray`s, launched in 2012, is now located in the Okazaki area
in the heart of Kyoto city.

The artist and representative is Daniel Ray Brewster.

He was born as American and Japanese in South Carolina, USA,
and grew up in Okinawa, Japan from the age of 2.

He began studying Japanese style tattoos during his teen years,
and shortly after became interested in other tattoo styles, such as Western and tribal designs.

He steadily acquired experience designing and researching many types of tattoo art over the years on his own,
attributing to his expertise in Japanese style, Western style, tribal, Chicano, and all other styles of tattoo design and application.

Of note is his specialty in white tattoos, which is often regarded as a complicated procedure in terms of technical difficulty.
Through years of dedication to his craft by research and experimentation, he has perfected the art of white tattoo application.

Until only a few years ago, he had devoted himself to sculpting Buddhist statues in an extra effort to hone his design skills and aesthetic sense in Kyoto,
where unique and traditional Japanese culture has remained deeply rooted to this day.

Finally, in 2012, he opened his own studio, "TATTOO STUDIO Ray`s" in Kyoto city, serving satisified customers from not only Japan,
but also from all corners of the world.

Currently, we are active not only as a tattoo artist,
but also as an apparel designer, having launched our own brand [ RAYS ]

We hope that if you come to visit Kyoto in the future, and

would like to stop by for a tattoo during your stay,
please do let us know!
We are waiting to hear from you soon!
