Tattoos are.. less spectacular than the ones on the first book, pictures are.. "flat", poor definition, and... most of all, the binding is really pitiful. I like books, treat them good, this one was messed up waaaaaay before the end of the first reading. I shipped it back, hoping it was only an accident: wrong. The replacement was the same, pages falling apart after an hour, binding really cheap.
Disappointing. On the other side.. the price is really low (perhaps do they wanna get rid of the lot..?? to get the binding situation addressed..???). So... for that price, I'm ok, but... far from being fully satisfied.
Some reviews really depend on your (the reader's) intentions in buying the book. However, for this book, it pretty much covers them all.
If you're looking for tattoo ideas/inspirations - this is a great book with PAGES of beautiful tattoos
If you're looking for an art book with an emphasis (ok, total focus) on tattoos - this is a great book with PAGES of beautiful tattoos
If you're looking for a gift for the tattoo enthusiast the artist in your life - - this is a great book with PAGES of beautiful tattoos
I think you get where I'm going with this.
This book really is a great book. The pictures are beautiful, the art is beautiful and one thing this book does that stands out amongst the rest is that it has "chapters" (several samples) from tattoo artists - so if you see something you LOVE and want it OR want THAT specific artist, it gives the artists information and a little bit of information on them. Not overly in your face, and not too little information.
Great book, buy it and enjoy it.
This edition is even better than the first and excells in that jaw-dropping: "I've never seen that style or design concept before" amazement type of way..
The kind of amazement I was sure did not exist in tattooing any longer. I was very wrong..
Lal seems to have covered the world (South Korea, the States, Japan, the UK) and gives us a very progressive and illustratively thorough collection of the newest (to me anyway) and most boundary pushing artists: Dan Rooke,Amanda Wachob and Kore Flatmo as well as an authoritative profile of the classic artists which must be included in any collection: Horiyoshi III, Bob Tyrell, Hanna Aitchinson, Louis Malloy and the man himself; Lal Hardy.
If these names mean nothing at all to you and you have a only passive interest in the art of tattooing: this is the most comprehensive and properly curated book you'll ever come to need. Outstanding for either your new bohemian Hackney converted where-house/flat's coffee table as it is for any tattoo artist's waiting room.
