Zhang Xiaobais luxurious paintings exist at a unique junction of fantasy art and tattoo culture. The figures she constructs are beautifully adorned with painted tattoos of traditional Chinese iconography and are juxtaposed against detailed, colorful background scenes. Beautiful tattooed female warriors prepare for battle, red riding hood-like girls venture dangerously near a forest, a dark queen takes off a kabuki mask, and delicately adorned women repose on beds of bright orange leaves. Xiaobais paintings incorporate traditional themes with a modern twist, and the book is split into cohesive sections: classic style paintings, dark arts paintings, fantasy paintings, and paintings in a modern style. Xiaobai is a famous Chinese manga illustrator and a key member of the Beijing Assassin Tattoo Organization; one of her mangas recently won the Gold Medal at the 2011 International Manga Competition in Japan. Fantasy Tattoo Art also includes an appendix of preliminary black and white sketches, which can be used as inspiration for illustrators or tattoo artists.

For thousands of years, people have engaged in ritualistic marking of the skin to identify themselves as a member of a tribe, of a lineage, of a mindset, or of a subculture. The ancient art of tattooing is a tradition we carry on to this day. While the past 10 years have seen no shortage of books about tattoos and tattooing, most are best described as “idea books.� Until now, none have profiled the world’s most renowned artists across a variety of styles. This book explores this most basic form of self-expression by showcasing the studios and work of 18 of the world’s top tattoo artists, including Sulu’ape Angela (San Diego), Aaron Bell (Seattle), Bugs (Los Angeles), Mo Cappoletta (London), Madame Chan (Brussels), Daniel DiMattia (Liege), Durga (Jakarta), Gakkin (Kyoto), Horiryu (Costa Mesa), Henning Jorgensen (Copenhagen), Rory Keating (San Diego), Brent McCowan (Carinthia), Maneko (Brasilia), Keone Nunes (Oahu), Noon (New York/London/Berlin), Sua Sulu’ape Petelo (Sydney), Te Rangitu (Waipapa), and Simon & Eddie (Hartama). Each chapter profiles the artist in the context of where he or she fits into the overall tradition of tattooing, while the photos showcase not only the art but also the artists and their workspaces.

As the proprietor of the legendary Sea Tramp Tattoo Company, in Portland, Oregon, Jeff Johnson has inked gangbangers, age-defying moms, and sociopaths; he’s defused brawls and tended delicate egos. In Tattoo Machine, Johnson illuminates a world where art, drama, and commerce come together in highly entertaining theater. A tattoo shop is no longer a den of outcasts and degenerates, but a place where committed and schooled artists who paint on living canvases develop close bonds and bitter rivalries, where tattoo legends and innovators are equally revered, and where the potential for disaster lurks in every corner.
