      I have no Samurai's tattoos, but I know that they mean. What truly set the samurai apart were their principles of bravery, honour, respect and service. A samurai tattoo is worn to indicate these qualities in the wearer of the tattoo. In fact, the samurai were trained to put these principles ahead of their own lives, and they were taught to be fearless in the face of death. This would explain how they won various battles in which they were outnumbered.
