Over the past ten years Martin LaCasse has created an amazing collection of artwork. His art redefines the universal themes and visual language of the tattoo, through a fine art interpretation. His unique style melds both Western and Eastern traditional tattoo imagery with an authenticity that could only be created by a true practitioner of the art of tattooing. With both paintings and flash work, the book is vivid and richly detailed, with skulls and dragons and beam-eyed gods, demons and Samurai and Christs crowned in thorns. With over 200 full color plates, this book is pure inspiration, and an essential for any artists bookshelf. Foreword by Joe Capobianco. Softcover edition.
