There’s a great new book out this week that covers exclusively hand make tattoos, and it looks great. I feel like there’s been an increase over the last few years in the popularity of any tattoo made without a machine, so this book seems to have come at a great time. Hand made tattoos are, when well executed, absolutely amazing to see, and it’s great to know that there are plenty of tattooers who are still keeping this method of tattooing alive in a captivating way.
This book looks at 23 tattooers, and their thoughts on hand made tattooing, as well as their fantastic work. Here’s an artist list:
Kai Uwe Faust
Lard Yao Peter
Su’a Sulu’ape Angela
Tor Ola Svennevig
Foreword by Alex Binnie
This book looks like it will be amazing. It’s great to have this kind of insight into how modern tattooers create such masterpieces with ancient techniques, and how they have adapted those methods for modern day tattooing. You can buy this book now, by going to Amazon (link). Get to it!
