"American photographer Sandi Fellman used a rare large size Polaroid camera to create these photos of Irezumi Japanese men and women who wear elaborate full-body tattoos. Fellman treats the tattoos as artworks and their creators as artists. Her text touches on the tattooing process, common motifs, the sociology of the tattoo, and relationships between the tattoo masters and their clients. Author D.M. Thomas has contributed two pages of his reactions to these unusual and even disturbing images. The 46 color plates in this volume, most of them whole body nudes, should prove provocative, fascinating, or repellant to a wide variety of library patrons." Library Journal

This book is a serious must have for anyone who is considering a japenese tattoo.10 out of 10 5 stars...
my only qualm with this book is that although the images are amazing, there are a few blunders in the mix, shots that have been taking too close, unrecognisable body parts in some shots too, also larger shots of the same tattoos appear every now and then, but you cant complain for the price!
overall taking into account that this book was first published over 25 years ago the work and images are a must for any fan of tattoos and japanese work!
I would recommend this book for any tattoo enthusiast.
