In stock (1000 items available)
An art form unique in the world, tattoos are as varied in style and form as the living bodies they adorn. Under the Skin examines tattoos from three different angles, through the work of more than 37 artists. First the book explores cultural history, including tribal, Japanese and American traditional tattoos. Next is a survey of individuals and their tattoos. Third, and finally, Under the Skin catalogues the visual language of tattoos, looking at six major artistic styles ideally suited to human skin. With its combination of detailed photographs of ink on skin and lovingly reproduced flash art, Under the Skin makes an excellent introduction to the history and craft of tattoo, and a worthy addition to any ink aficionado’s library.
