Great book for some old school imagery..., 24 Aug. 2007
I like this book. Great art by some great artists. The text is simple and minimal, and the photo's are great quality large images. It is however very very old school. If you enjoy the flat simple technique of early japanese tattoo art this book is a must have. It's not that the tattoo's are of a lesser quality, it is just that they are very traditional. If you are seriously considering a great traditional japanese tattoo, or are interested in simply learning more about it, this book will be useful for you to see a good overal collection of the most common elements with short simple explanations.
