Female manga fans understand that there’s more to Japan’s comic industry than the schoolyard romances and shojo sparkles with which we are targeted. A lot of us really love the action, the fighting, and the hero adventure stuff too! Thankfully, there are at least a handful of manufacturers out there who understand where we’re coming from. One such company is catering to us girls with less feminine fandoms by bringing us tattoo tights from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure!
Amazon Japan always carries a large selection of figurines and apparel from the long-running manga series, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. In conjunction with the recent anime adaptation, some very special stockings have also been added to the mix!
In late April, tattoo tights featuring Joseph Joestar and Caesar Zeppeli were released, and starting December 31, Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando tights will also be available for 1,500 yen (US$15.35) per pack. The tights are made to look like a black ink tattoos, but even more badass than the illusion of going under the needle are the hardcore JoJo-brand sound effects written in katakana and snaking up the thighs. After all, what self-respecting JoJo print would be complete without a flurry of punches (ドドド), some looming doom (ゴゴゴ), or a piercing pain (ズキュウウウン)?
Sadly, it looks like these tights are not up for international delivery, but I encourage any fan with a Japanese address or connections to a local hobby store to look into purchasing one of these exciting new designs!
