Traditional Japanese style tattoo design meets the digital age!

Russ Abbott created these brushes to enhance the process of designing traditional Japanese style tattoo backgrounds, flowers, and leaves. Although many subtle variations of style are included in the set, we invite you to customize these brushes to your personal taste, or simply use them as an underlying layer in your final design. Make no mistake about it, you're going to absolutely love how much time you save using this set!


Clouds (9 Brushes)

Clouds and wind bars are one of the signature background elements from traditional Japanese tattooing. These brushes will provide you with a range of tools to quickly try out background options to go along with whatever subject matter you choose. We recommend that you draw on top of these and change them to add more variation and style.


Cherry Blossoms (23 Brushes)

The Cherry Blossom is one of the staples of Japanese Tattoo design. Russ tried to give you a lot of variations here, but chances are, you're still going to want to draw back on top of these to customize them and make them more lifelike and unique. In addition to perfectly symmetrical blossoms, We've also included some really nice side views and a selection of single petals that you can quickly scatter randomly through your design to show the blossoms blowing in the wind.


Plum Blossoms (8 Brushes)

While not as commonly tattooed as the Cherry, the Plum Blossom is a beautiful flower which certainly deserved a place in this set. Here we've got 4 variations with slightly skewed alternates for each version.


Maple Leaves (6 Brushes)

Russ completed this Japanese brush set with a favorite background element to showcase an Autumn scene. Three stylistic variations of the Maple Leaf are included with top and side views. Again, feel free to go back in and draw on top of these to introduce variation such as rough edges and holes through the leaves. Experiment and have fun! Soon you'll be making brushes of your own for a fully customized experience.
