A look at the crossover between fine art and tattooing Fine artists are increasingly practicing the art of tattoo while tattoo artists are exercising their skills beyond skin; both are taking the visceral aesthetic of the tattoo underworld with them to create some astounding art pieces. A new art movement in its own right, this fantastic collection of amazing, visceral imagery will appeal to anyone into the contemporary art scene, but also to the vast armies of people getting inked. More than 50 world-class artists from the United States., Europe, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia, and the UK are represented, each with a detailed biography and discussion of their work.


"The artwork in Beyond Tattoo is simply breathtaking, not to mention the book makes a great coffee table read."  —Aquarian
