Taboo Tattoo
Volume 1


Seigi, a martial arts trained middle schooler, often feels driven to protect the weaker people around him. One day, he defends a homeless man against some punks, and the man gives him a strange tattoo on his palm in return. The tattoo is a secret weapon produced in the arms race between America and the Serinistan Kingdom.

Seigi finds himself in over his head when a powerful girl, using the same secret weapon, violently pursues him in order to retrieve it. His skill at martial arts may not be enough to keep him alive, but will he be able to learn how to trigger the power of his tattoo in time?

I completed this manga, very poor story, just the art is best thing in this series.

The concept at the beginning is attractive and it seem to turn to be good story ....but !! once you go deep in the manga it will turn to be very horrible.

If you are insist to read it,just make sure to be ok with very dark story and once you go deep in manga it will keep going to be more bloody and dark, just make sure you are ok with those things.

Unfortunately i completed it and i regret the 4 days i wasted it on this series.

tl;dr: A manga with some potential to the action and some good comedy but that fails at everything surrounding that.

This manga gets better as it goes on, but it’s still kind of a mess. The first third or so of the manga is simply complete nonsense where it feels like it has no clue what it wants to be or what it wants to do with characters being incredibly inconsistent, the tone shifting randomly in very jarring ways, and the pacing being awful. After that it seems to settle into what it wants to be, which is a fairly standard battle series with characters with read more

This manga is ok, but nothing special. I don't regret buying it, but I will be selling it now, as don't feel I need to hold on to it, I won't be re-reading it.

I would tag this with:
- Action
- Dark
- Super Powers

Story: 6/10
To be honest, I liked the story up the point where the anime ended (same story as in the anime, the anime covered about half the manga), and slightly afterwards too. It was interesting, there are some real setbacks, and I like when some of the main characters don't have plot armor. The ending however, was just so bad in my opinion... read more

Minor spoilers ahead. Just skip to enjoyment if you want it completely spoiler free, although the amount isn't really that much to begin with.

Ecchi and action: a match made in heaven. Unfortunately, that's only the case if the proper set up and balance are created, which Taboo Tattoo does not accomplish. What it does do is it creates a visually sound action adventure of pervs, sadists, heroes and homosexuals.

Story: Right off the bat, the classic set up of "boy gets dragged into secret war between two sides" comes into play. Battles are not in short supply but are instead brief albeit brutal affairs with lots read more
