Product Description

Book Description

500 contemporary colour photographs, featuring the work of 80 of the world's leading tattoo artists.

Product Description

It is now estimated that as much as 10% of the population in the UK and USA carries a tattoo. The huge recent growth in tattoo culture has in turn led to an influx of new talented artists, advancements in pigments and refinement of the equipment used. This giant volume includes the very best of the new work made possible by modern improvements in tattoo art. Here are 500 striking photographic images of tattoos, covering all styles from bold 'tribal' pieces, Chinese characters and hieroglyphs to delicate air-brushed designs, and from all-over 'body suits' to individual motifs - works as distinctive as the bodies they adorn. Featuring the work of the Discovery Channel's L.A. Ink stars Corey Miller, Kim Saigh and Hannah Aitchinson, and London Ink's Nicole Lowe, Louis Molloy and Phil Kyle amongst many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money 10 April 2009
By Jo
Format:Paperback
This is an incredible book. I've spent a lot of time looking at tattoo books over the years but very rarely have i purchased them. One of the biggest let downs with most books is the lack of decent pictures with artist information, this book does not have that problem. The photos are beautiful, with a fantastic list of artists and the studios where they work which is great if your looking for a new artist to do some work for you. The artists listed are from all over the world but there's still a great list of UK artists to choose from. For the money i think this a fantastic book.

The Mammoth Book of Tattoos is a book designed to showcase some of the world's best talent in the world of tattoo body art.

Each artist featured has their own section, with a small bio and a selection of their work. While anyone familiar with a particular artist may consider the images shown to be a rather condensed verison of a portfolio this book is a must for anyone looking to aquire a new tattoo in the near future - as a reference point on which to base further research this book is ideal.

The images are of high quality, and while the bios are not as in depth as I expected they serve their purpose to introduce the reader to the next selection of works.

For the price there's no excuse not to get this ordered, a must for any tattoo fan.

There are some fantastic pictures and artwork in this book for anyone interested in top quality tatto work. Only downside, like the first book, the quality of the binding is not very robust so you need to handle with care otherwise lose pages! For the price it is acceptable though would have preferred to pay more for a better quality binding. Obviously no one listened to the feedback from the first book!!

3.0 out of 5 stars not for the coffee table. 5 May 2010
Format:Paperback
Good pictures, nicely thought through and put together but it isn't useful to have on the coffee table for visitors to have a flick through cause after looking at it twice myself i've found that the pages are coming away from the spine. In order for it to last I'll have to glue it.There are a lot of pages, but the book is on the small side and the binding can't cope with the weight. Would be great in a larger, hardback addition.
