Tattoos and body piercings are both the oldest and newest of the fine arts. While some people reject the idea that body modification has any artistic value, others are devoted to using their bodies as living canvases for artistic expression. This book explores the people and organizations working to bring this art form to the forefront today, as well as the cultures that pioneered tattoo and piercing art in the past.
