Seibei, of Choraku-ji Temple, was the first tattooed Yakuza boss. In old times Yakuza were not tattooed. The tattoo on his back was a Ono-no Komachi and cherry blossoms on his waist, hands, and legs. When he took a hot bath and drank, his skin became pink (see silver red). He was a Yakuza boss in 1827 in Fugieda City, Shizuoka Prefecture.
