Body Art

Look around and likely your eyes will fall upon many a tattooed person. The fad is at its height and even youngsters are getting inked. This book concentrates on the body art as selected and displayed by some celebrities, mostly form the world of pop music culture. The tattoos vary greatly, from subtle tiny statements to total boy inking. Many of the tattoos illustrated are accompanied by statements by or interviews with the 'living canvas' on which they are painted. There are about a hundred images of musicians and pop-culture heroes gathered by the magazine Rolling Stone, and the images vary form black and white photographs to full color reproductions. Of note, there is a page devoted to actor/producer Mark Wahlberg in his early days as a rapper; his tattoos include a 'neck chain' with the phrase 'In God I Trust' also with some arm art - little of which is extant - unless makeup artists have their way with these inkings....

Whether the tattoo urge will grow or fade is not known, but this book will interest those who participate in inking as well as those who desire a closer look at celebrity 'art'.
