Description

Whether you're thinking of getting a tattoo or just want to see to what lengths others have gone in decorating their bodies, this is the book to check out.

1000 Tattoos explores the history of the art worldwide via designs and photos--from 19th-century engravings to tribal body art, from circus ladies of the '20s to classic biker designs.

About the Author

The editors:

Art historian Burkhard Riemschneider runs an art gallery in Berlin and has published several monographs on contemporary artists.

For years, Henk Schiffmacher has been recognised as one of the stars of the tattoo scene. His Amsterdam studio attracts countless tattoo pilgrims, and he also runs the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, which exhibits material from Schiffmachers own vast historical and contemporary collection.
