Just another exciting Taschen product covering the offbeat and interesting. The ink and body art are colorful and I'm sure each tattoo has it own history/story. Tattoos are not for me, and the people involved are in the long haul for telling their life's experiences, who they were with, what they did, and even what they're planning for the future. Some of the art is magnificent and cleverly done...but I would always worry about the work fading out, the owner changing body sizes and shapes, and of course, what it would mean to others, some favorable but mostly negative, especially on the job or in a relationship. It appears it's not good to change lovers after your former date left a permanent mark.
