Editorial Reviews

11/19/2014
Stunning large-scale tattoo work by stellar tattooists are captured... Their differing tattoo styles conveyed in backpieces and front torso tattoos should be of interest to a wide range of tattoo enthusiasts.

Drawn from a body of work spanning eight years, Torso documents the burgeoning tattoo phenomenon across the United States and Pacific Islands. Cuff's photographs are slick and darkly addictive. Torso's minimal design, and Cuff's use of black and white photography and closely cropped images enhance the graphic structure of the work in a powerful way.
