Description

It is now estimated that as much as 10% of the population in the UK and USA carries a tattoo. The huge recent growth in tattoo culture has in turn led to an influx of new talented artists, advancements in pigments and refinement of the equipment used. This giant volume includes the very best of the new work made possible by modern improvements in tattoo art. Here are 500 striking photographic images of tattoos, covering all styles from bold 'tribal' pieces, Chinese characters and hieroglyphs to delicate air-brushed designs, and from all-over 'body suits' to individual motifs - works as distinctive as the bodies they adorn. Featuring the work of the Discovery Channel's L.A. Ink stars Corey Miller, Kim Saigh and Hannah Aitchinson, and London Ink's Nicole Lowe, Louis Molloy and Phil Kyle amongst many others.

Customer reviews

I bought this book last week and the tattoos in there are truly amazing, however, after flipping through the book a couple of times all of the pages are coming away from the binding and it is literally falling apart. In short if you're just looking for ideas and don't need the book to last more than about a week or two then buy it, but if you're after something to keep, then keep looking. I hope this is helpful.show more
