Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tattoos and piercings are hotter than ever — and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. But, while there are several tattoo picture books on the market and many popular magazines, there's nothing like The Body Art Book. First, it's written by Jean-Chris Miller, a body art authority and Editorial Director for the magazines Skin Art, In the Flesh, Tattoo Review and many others. Second, it's the only reference source available that takes readers through every step of the process. From choosing style and placement, to finding the right artist, to ensuring safety and proper care (and even correcting or removing unwanted body art), The Body Art Book covers not only tattoos and piercings, but a variety of alternative body modifications. Filled with insider's secrets, hands-on advice, and a directory of services worldwide, it's the most complete and informative body art book available.

Includes practical information on: - tattoos - piercings - artists - styles - jewelry - alternative body modifications - safety - care - selection - placement - procedures - healing time charts - correction - removal - terminology - history - symbolism - listings - plus a worldwide directory of reputable tattoo and piercing establishments.

Synopsis:

Discusses the history of body art, offers a glossary of the symbols in tattoos, and covers safety precautions.

Description:

"Appendix: International directory of body art": p. 127-181.
