Summary
"A celebration of all things tattoo, this visually appealing wealth of tattoo knowledge will have you running for the nearest tattoo artist. The twenty-first century has seen a boom in tattooing, with millions of American's--23 percent of them--boasting ink on their body. This popular pastime is not something to be taken lightly, as there are dozens of aspects to consider when planning your ink. Art on Skin helps with that planning by detailing the different types of art, ink, and artists that pervade the industry. Using striking visuals, Art on Skin showcases the beauty of the art of tattooing and aids in the choosing of a style, with detailed descriptions of the many different styles of tattoos, including fine art, cartoon characters, wildlife, and many more. The full-color photographs within these pages will leave you with dreams of your own pieces, and stories from others who have lived the tattoo experience and will keep you from stumbling upon unwelcome surprises. This is the perfect book for tattoo lovers and prospective tattoo junkies of all kinds"--Back cover
