thanks to the brit below for overstating the obvious. this book isnt about tattoos. but it most certainly isnt about modern dance. this book contains insightful commentary into the world of post ww2 radical performance art and an amazing collection of photos of stand out artists. the aktionists are shown, as are their american counterparts, and several more obscure artists. the update at the end also features some great performers of the present.
very worthwhile, very informative introduction the challenging, taboo smashing world of body art.
