Tammeijiro Genshogo, from the series Tsuzoku Suikoden Goketsu Hyakuhachinin no Hitori
As described in the square box of text in the upper left corner, the bandit Tanmeijiro Genshogo was known for his striking tattoo as well as his ability to stay under water for a long period of time. Kuniyoshi depicts the bandit wrestling with an opponent under water. The water is rendered with great skill, with a layer of modulated blue ink printed over the entire composition.
