High Voltage Tattoo
Von D, Kat
High Voltage Tattoo is a graphic perspective on today's global tattoo culture by Kat Von D, star of The Learning Channel's L.A. Ink and one of the most talented and popular artists working today. Designed in a style that is reminiscent of a handmade Gothic journal with its red padded cover, ornate typography, and parchment like pages, it throws the door wide open to tattooing culture in the way only an insider like Kat can. High Voltage Tattoo traces Kat's career as an artist, from early childhood influences to recent work, along with examples of what inspires her, information about the show and her shop, her sketches, and personal tattoos. The book goes deep into tattoo process and culture: readers can see up close the pigments, the tools, and the making of complex, even collaborative, tattoos.
Body art meets popular science in this elegant, mind-blowing collection, written by renowned science writer Carl Zimmer. Showcasing hundreds of eye-catching tattoos that pay tribute to various scientific disciplines, from evolutionary biology and neuroscience to mathematics and astrophysics, Science Ink reveals the stories of the individuals who chose to inscribe their obsessions in their skin. Best of all, each tattoo provides a leaping-off point for bestselling essayist and lecturer Zimmer to reflect on the science in question, whether it's the importance of an image of Darwin's finches or the significance of the uranium atom inked into the chest of a young radiologist.
Showcasing the work of more than 125 modern tattoo masters from around the globe, Tattoo World is an in-depth look at tattooing as both an art form and time-honored tradition. Each tattooist has their own story and path that led them behind the needle.While some are drawn to ancient motifs, such as iconography from Japan and East Asia and tribal designs from the Pacific Islands, others have pushed the boundaries of tattooing into new territory, experimenting with art brut and surrealist styles that are on the cutting edge of the medium. This ultimate collection includes more than one thousand spectacular designs grouped by style, including classic Americana, photorealism, biomechanical, and more. Each section opens by tracing the roots of a specific movement, then dives into a gallery of international artists chosen for their skill and vision. From the private ateliers of grand Japanese masters to the street shops of Southern California, readers will find themselves on a tattoo world tour that takes them into the studios of the brightest stars working in the field today.
