When I think of the names and places that have helped shape how tattooing is today, I always think of New York. I bet most of you guys do, too. The whole state is still alive with rich tattoo history, that you can’t ever get bored of hearing about. Thankfully, one of the coolest books to document a lot of this history, specifically in New York City, has just been re-released.
New York City Tattoo: The Oral History of an Urban Art, by Michael McCabe, is once again available in its first re-release since its 1997 debut. The book is absolutely amazing, and it even has more in it than before! From Doug Hardy’s instagram:
