Tattooing is an art form that has for centuries defined individuals in terms of status, culture and physical prowess. Now more popular than ever, it has become a lifestyle expression for millions across the world who seek self-expression in an increasingly confused and controlling environment. Moving from the domain of sailors and soldiers to executives, car mechanics, working mothers, teenagers, supermarket workers, bus conductors, librarians, film stars...everyone and any one can have a tattoo. "Advanced Tattoo Art" takes the reader inside ten of the most well-known tattoo parlors, following projects with detailed photographs and instructions from initial concept to completed, colorful finish. Both a how-to book and a lavishly illustrated guide to the world of tattoos and tattooing, this includes interviews with the artists who explain not only what they do but why they do it.
