The book features 26 international artists who use
a variety of media, from ink, watercolor, acrylic paint,
and oil to lino printing, painting on wood and board,
and even examples of tattoo-style skateboard graphics.
Many of the artists are heavily infl uenced by the imagery
they use as tattooists—roses, hearts, skulls, scrolls, birds,
pin-ups, etc.—and carry this into their personal work.
Other work features colors, themes, or subject matter
that is more subtly related to tattooing.
