"Inspirational sourcebook of one of the most popular types of body art today.

With almost 5000 years of history, tattoos have been updated, renewed and adapted at a much faster rate than other similar artistic expressions.

This book is a faithful testimony of this, as it combines dozens of pieces of work from the most outstanding international tattoo artists, those who have used the human body as a canvas for their work."
