Taboo Tattoo Deep Information
The anime will be released across six Blu-ray volumes. The official website for the anime is tabootattoo-anime.com.
Tattoo is activated through the charging of its user’s own unique “trigger.” They are super-scientific weapons that drastically enhance the physical abilities of their users, known as the “Sealed,” allowing them to bring forth supernatural phenomena. The trigger differs depending on the tattoo.
Copy Tattoo is a byproduct of the research process that resulted in the original. It doesn’t take root, so it can be removed, but its capabilities are low. A copy tattoo can only act as a noise canceler that negates supernatural phenomena generated by other tattoos.
