Stunning tattoos. At least I think it is multiple tattoos. It might be more appropriate to consider it singular.

This is an Oiran, or "courtesan". She was actually a high ranking prostitute who  cost more than other prostitutes. Notice her tall shoes! The young girls with her were sold by their families and are being trained in the art from a young age. Also, do not confuse Oiran with Geisha. A Geisha would go ballistic if that happened. Ca. 1905 - 1920.
