5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy ! 28 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book with high hopes after reading rave reviews in Total Tattoo and Skin Deep. I have to say they were right. It is a extremely well put together book on a very popular tattooing style.There are various mediums covered here from very traditional styles based on Polynesian themes to dotwork and beyond. The works of Leo Zuluetta to Xed Le Head and many many more are there to inspire and astound. Each chapter has a brief but, well worth reading foreword and introduction to the masters of the style. Then, there are the photos,all full page highly detailed offerings; well shot and lit. This is a truly inspiring book that is not only a great sourcebook and reference for future projects for tattoo fans but, a revealing look at an often overlooked artform for the none tattooed too. I spents hours scouring through it and absorbing each photo. Plus buying on Amazon saves you a staggering 35 off the normal asking price !! Buy it you won't regret it.

I've been researching Polynesian and island tattoos to help design my next masterpiece and this is simply awesome. the photography catches everything you want to see when looking for black ink work. I would recommend this title to anyone looking for the same thing no mater the cost of the edition they buy.
