She does not have a tattoo. She's wearing one of those tattoo choker necklaces that were popular in the 90s:

Is it uncomfortable? I'd feel uncomfortable if there's something so close-fitting to my neck. Or maybe that's just me.

Tattoos are in Japan a no-go. If you are not a member of Yakuza you don't have a tattoo.

Wait really? Are you not a little bit exaggerating?

Because ok tattoo = yakuza maybe, but I doubt that young boys/girls that want a "cute" little tattoo won't do it because of that.

"Hey you have a cute butterfly tattoo on your shoulder!! You are a yakuza!!"  BLEH! 

Or maybe I'm totally wrong and it's something really special in Japan. Any more infos on that?

On topic about MAMI, it looks nice IMO Happy

If you have a tattoo you can't enter public baths. Wink

Yep, and also on some others public areas such as beaches, it's prohibited.

But for the initial question, my sisters also had those necklaces several years ago, so it's not a tattoo indeed.

It's not that strict anymore, Japan is becoming more open to the idea that Tattoo's can be treated as art and not a sign that your a gangster.  I was at an onsen in Niseko and they let me in despite being a foreigner and having three tattoo's.  While I was in there I met a Japanese man who also had a tattoo looked like mural of someone it was quite good.  Now there are still places that won't let you in, but if it was ever an issue I was usually just asked to cover my arm.

Yeah it's not really that big of a deal anymore - a lot of people in music have them. Just like in the west, there are still people and places that frown on it if they see a lot of body art. But they definitely do not automatically think "Yakuza" like they may have in the past. It's pretty trendy there to have a tattoo now; it's kind of like it was in the US in the 80's or 90's, when not that many people had them but enough did that it became more visible and other people started changing their attitudes about it.

Not sure why this topic went from MAMI to Yakuza...

Since the OP's original question was already answered a while ago and people are starting to talk about other things, please close this topic, Lexian. Thanks.

Mami does not have a tattoo. It's a choker necklace. CASE CLOSED.
