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.

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.

This sophisticated look at the latest high-style skin decorations, created by the most creative contemporary tattoo artists, is divided into five chapters: Tribal; Paintings, Prints, and Portraits; Imagination and Fantasy; Neotraditional; and All the Rest. A lively introduction provides a cogent history of tattooing through the ages, making clear that the compulsion to personalize the body has characterized humanity throughout recorded history. Concluding the introduction is an informative evaluation of how the tattoo scene has changed since the "tattoo renaissance" that began in the 1960s and has culminated in today's heady mix of inventive old masters and young art-school-trained hotshots. An invaluable appendix gives answers to the questions anyone should ask before getting a tattoo, including: How Is a Tattoo Made? Is It Safe? How Do I Find the Right Tattoo Artist? How Do I Pick the Right Design? How Much Will It Cost? How Long Does It Take? What Maintenance Does a Tattoo Require? Can I Get Rid of It?
