For decades tattoos were mostly rendered onto the biceps of sailors, construction workers, and outlaw bikers, but starting in the 1960s a new generation of artists sparked a renaissance in body art. Now tattoos reflect a high degree of artistic talent and have long since moved from the biceps of roughnecks to the torsos of the artists’ clients or even their entire bodies. This book discusses what today’s artists are doing, how they attract a following, and what they are saying through their artwork.
