Whether you’re thinking of getting a tattoo or just want to see to what lengths others have gone in decorating their bodies, this is the book to check out. A co-production with the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, this book explores the history of the art worldwide via designs and photos—from 19th century engravings to tribal body art, from circus ladies of the 20s to classic biker designs—giving a fascinating insight into the art of tattooing. Thick, softbound, color and b&w. This low-priced special edition has been issued in honor of Taschen’s 25th anniversary.
