ABOUT US

Ruyjin Press

From the vibrant streets of Argentina, I am Leo Barada, the youngest of a family of five brothers, all immersed in the art of tattooing. I grew up among inks and needles, with the sound of the tattoo artist as a background melody and the stories of dragons and masks that my brother Pablo drew on the skin of his clients.

Pablo, more than a brother, was a teacher to me. He was recognised throughout the country, and his fame transcended borders. Through his hands, I discovered a world full of dragons, masks, fish and mysterious waters. Although at first I did not understand the origin of these symbols, I felt a deep connection to them.

"My dream is that, through Ryujinpress, art transcends borders and touches the souls of those who discover it".

Over the years, my passion for Japanese art grew. I was not only fascinated by tattoos, but by Japanese culture as a whole. I travelled, studied and immersed myself in their way of life. Each stroke, each brushstroke, was a tribute to an ancient tradition that I had adopted as my own.

My dedication led me to create Japanese art books. At first, I relied on experts like Kosei Publications and Arte Tattoo for their production. But eventually, I decided to take the reins and create a book from scratch. It was a journey of self-discovery, where I not only reaffirmed my love for Japanese art, but also discovered a new passion: editing and creating books.

Today, with a collection of books under my arm and an unwavering passion, I have founded “Ryujinpress”. A space where artists from all over the world can express their vision and share their talent. My dream is that, through Ryujinpress, art will transcend borders and touch the souls of those who discover it.
