Description - Slave to the Needle by Aaron Bell
Professional tattoo artists and their clients showcase tattoo imagery in various forms, featuring traditional and neo-traditional Americana, Japanese themes, and New School designs. Find geishas, sugarskulls, dragons, and more executed with the utmost care and precision in this unique display of tattoo art that goes beyond the ordinary flash book to convey how inspiration makes its way from mind to skin. This celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the original Slave to the Needle tattoo shop in Seattle starts with an illustrated history of how the shop came to be - during the "Tattoo Renaissance" of the mid-'90s. There is a section dedicated to paintings and ink drawings of surreal and fantasy art and vibrant flash, followed by a collection of stunning sleeve, backpiece, and bodysuit designs created by the shop's owner, crew, and guests. This retrospective is a vital component to any serious tattoo artist or collector's library. AUTHOR: Out of his home base at Slave to the Needle in Seattle, Aaron has contributed numerous works and articles to various trade books and magazines, and has received many accolades for tattooing since beginning his apprenticeship in 1993. 520 colour images
