Format: Paperback
This book contains many pictures from featured tattoo artists, including the work of Ed Hardy, Bob Roberts, Chris Garver, Horyoshi III, and many other well known artists. The book also has interviews and articles with and about each artist mentioned. It has a mix of styles of tattooing from the traditional Japanese hand tattooing to the western tattoo machine. The tattoos shown are also in a wide variety: traditional, new school, japanese, portraits, etc. I recommend this book.

As an overview of current trends in the tattoo world, alongside basic information as for the developement of the prominant artists in the past 30 years this book is of high importance.
It is not a flash book nor should it be regarded as one.
Sadly it lacks on European artists, namly of recent years.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A well put together book focusing on interviews presenting the work and background of different tattoo artists. I would have loved to have seen more pictures of their individual work and perhaps also how they work, to get to know the craft more than just (in some interviews) the tattooist. In any case, a decent and informative book worth the money.

This book is composed of interviews with the artists it features, plus their artwork (mostly tattoos).

The interviews focus on the artists' histories and careers, when I wish there was more insight into the art developing, thoughts about different styles, tattoo work. On the other hand, the content is very real - words of the artists, no 'filler'.

The artwork is very good (worth a look for sure), and the selection of artists is great... a lot of diverse styles represented. It's a pretty good book to look at, and read some of the interviews with artists that interest you, but I wish I learned more about tattooing from it.
