Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"JK5 and many of the other artists featured in this book have wait-lists months long, and have tattooed everyone from Marc Jacobs, Ad-Rock from the Beastie Boys, Penelope Cruz, and the late Heath Ledger. But their artwork goes beyond just the skin, and “Tatt Book” published by Rizzoli features some of the leading names in tattooing and an incredible collection of the most stunning pieces of artwork, both on skin and paper. Through gorgeous photographs, this book is an exacting tribute to this corporeal art form and to the men and women who advanced the trade, both the artists and those who decide to get inked." ~slamxhype
