[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - A-Net Digital, LLC has announced two new apps, Horiyoshi 3 & 100 Demons. You may never have heard of him, or you may be a die-hard fan of his work. Either way, Horiyoshi is a legend in the world of tattoo. His tattoos and artwork can be seen all over the world and have become recognized as the "traditional" Japanese style of tattoo called irezumi. He is an extremely gifted artist and illustrator and has inspired popular American tattoo artists such as Ed Hardy.

These two apps provide a convenient way to access this great talent's body of work. Horiyoshi himself says "This app shows my life and history, it is great to have an app like this to show my work to the world."

The first app is the Horiyoshi III App, which is best described as a visual compendium of his works. It includes his personal collection of photos and drawings, some which have never been released or seen by anyone else.
