The Art of the Tattoo presents the rich history and evolution of tattoo art - from the crude designs of European Ice Men and the vivid images of crusaders and sailors to the wide variety of contemporary and classic tattoo styles. Expert authors demonstrate how early traditional styles have influenced modern tattoo artists, and quotations, commentary, and observations from artists and tattooed alike explain the symbolism and historical development of particular motifs.
