Mar 27, 2012There's no history or analysis here, just short bios of various artists, along with examples of their art.
Dec 06, 2009Excellent pictures. Awesome!!!!
Oct 13, 2017I recently bought this book because I'm a tattoo lover and own several tattoos myself (with the intention to have even more inked onto me.) I liked the short bios on the different artists (of which there were eighty) and also enjoyed looking at the various photos of different styles of tattoos. This is a book for tattoo lovers and owners. (how many times can I say tattoo in this book review, by the way? XD )
Mar 15, 2014This is a good book for the tattoo fan and artist alike, a classic 'coffee table' book it is literally cover to cover photographs of some of the most impressive tattooing I have seen ever from top artists around the world. The tattoos are breathtaking, some of them look like paintings they are so good. The book is a bible for any fan of tattooing and is full of inspriational art.
Jun 24, 2012There's not a lot of writing in here, but enough for you to have a nice introduction, anda s small bio about each tattoo artist.
Jul 24, 2016For anyone who loves the art of tattoos this book is fantastic BUT if you actually want to be able to open this book fully & read more than once don't bother wasting your money. This book, a long with all of Lal Hardys The Mammoth Book of Tattoos are so poorly made. I can't even open them more than quarter of the way without the cheap plastic spine breaking so not only do you not get to enjoy each page to it's fullest but you risk the pages actually falling out.
Apr 16, 2010This one's a nice reference book regarding some popular tattoo artists. It provides a general idea about their particular styles of tattooing. I wish there were more sample works inside the book though because it really only shows a very vague idea of what each of the artists is capable of doing. Also, a more extensive biography on each artist wouldn't hurt. Oh, and captions. How can you show pictures inside a book without captions???

May 22, 2012Well worth picking up for true lovers of tattoo. I saw Lal Hardy at Brighton tattoo convention with a copy- seventeen and completely starstruck. It's just an exhibition of artists, but there's some truly awesome work in there. Perfect for inspiration and choosing one of the best.
Mar 28, 2011I truly believe that tattoos are an art form so I really loved this book. Plus, I've been wanting to get my own ink for awhile now so it helped me garner ideas.
Aug 14, 2011Featuring the work of nearly 80 tattoo artists from around the world. This is a nice book to look through for variety. I bought myself a copy when Borders was going out of business.
Jun 26, 2013Good. Obviously, mostly pics of awesome tats but I like to read the blubs from the artists. Gave me some new ideas, too. :-)
Sep 12, 2009Well, it's more of a showcase of tattoo artists and their work than all round tattooness. Awesome stuff though!
Oct 29, 2012Love the pictures and the bio's on all the artists. Very informative and keeps you wanting to see what is on the next page.
Take your time and choose the perfect book.
