🎎 Japanese Severed Head geisha samurai tattoo by Mat @mathewclarke 

Check out the cool history of Japanese severed head geisha. 🇯🇵 Prepare to be intrigued and amazed by this lesser-known aspect of Japanese culture! Here are some fascinating facts:

1️⃣ Origins:
Severed head geisha, also known as “Kubi Kanshi,” emerged during the Samurai era in feudal Japan. These exceptional geisha were highly skilled in traditional arts, such as tea ceremonies and dance, while also managing to maintain an air of mystery.

2️⃣ Art and Beauty Amidst Darkness:
Despite the unsettling nature of their name, severed head geisha celebrated beauty and artistry. Their unique makeup and iconic hairstyles, coupled with their exquisite kimonos, added an element of allure and elegance to their performances.

3️⃣ Symbolism:
The portrayal of severed head geisha was deeply rooted in symbolism. It represented the delicate balance between beauty and violence, reflecting the turbulent times of war and samurai culture. This juxtaposition served as a reminder of the fragility of life and the transitory nature of beauty.

4️⃣ Entertainment with an Edge:
Severed head geisha specialized in captivating storytelling through music, dance, and performances that often portrayed historical events and mythological tales. Their performances, sometimes punctuated with theatrical beheading enactments, enthralled audiences, leaving them in awe.

5️⃣ Legacy and Transformation:
Over time, the era of severed head geisha came to an end as Japan underwent social and cultural changes. However, elements of their artistry and symbolism can still be seen in contemporary geisha culture, albeit in a more refined and less morbid form.
