An elememt of the Yakuza which they are probably best known for is the full body tattoo or Horimono. This full body tattoo is unique in that it stops at a point where it can be seen when wearing clothes. The tats stop on the wrist and ankle so one can keep them hidden. The Yakuza are not getting tattoos to draw attention to themselves, quite the opposite, they get them to separate themselves from society. I am attaching two clips from National Geographic which further explain the Horimono.
