“Tattoo legend tells that once a Japanese nobleman wished to carry off a Rukyuan princess. She secretly tattooed her hands and arms with purple dye so her suitor believed she had contracted a skin disease and gave up his plan. Tattooing then became fashionable among island women, and each family had its individual pattern. When the Japanese took over the Ryukyus in 1879, they made tattooing illegal.”
