Overview

No longer the domain of bikers and sailors, tattoos can now be found decorating the skin of soccer moms and white-collar executives. Tattoo art has emerged from the garage to the parlor, from the local bar to the board room. With interest in tattoos at an all-time high, the time is right for a detailed look at the art and artists who create the elaborate designs. Advanced Tattoo Art takes the reader inside the shops of ten well-known and very experienced artists spread across the country. Detailed photo sequences follow each artist through one project, from the customer's concept to the finished and colorful design. Both a how-to book and a photo-intense look at the world or tattoos, Advanced Tattoo Art includes interviews with the artists that explain not only how they do what they do, but why they create the designs.

This book didn't show any "secrets from the masters". What it really contained was a few artists doing tattoos at a convention. It did have some good pictures and it has interviews with the artists and for the price it's ok. The tattoo process is layed out in a bird's eye view. Nothing earth shattering here. I'd give this a higher rating if it didn't seem like the title was trying to deliberately mislead aspiring artists. By the way, you can't learn how to tattoo from a book.

I actually bought this book as a gift for my son who is a tattoo artist.Once it arrived I thumbed through it and was amazed and inspired by the great pictures and information it had.After I gave it to him I asked if it had any useful info in it and he said it was one of the best books in his collection.He found some new techniques and ideas and some of his customers have browsed it while waiting.Lots of color photos and interviews made it interesting to read.

this book showed many different types and ways to get one but doesnt really show what is used in the pigments are they bad or are they good? not many books really show that. but i recommend this book if your looking for any body art or why it is used worldwide.
