Want to flaunt a tattoo without giving your mom a heart attack?
Want your makeup to look like you just stepped off the assembly line at the Barbie factory?
This ad for airbrush equipment assures us that “This summer, body art is hot!” and tutors nail artists in all the latest techniques for embellishing skin, nails, and even hair for the steamy months ahead. While the wedding art does seem a bit of a stretch, I predict hipsters all over Japan will breathe a sigh of relief that their fits of rebellion don’t have to last long enough to be regretted anymore.
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
