Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A unique and stimulating book on the subject of tattooing in China. After many years of traveling to Hong Kong and China, photographing the elusive and secretive world of permanent body illustration, British photographer and author Chris Wroblewski has produced the world's first publication on the art of Chinese skin illustration.With over 250 original images, showing the proud wearers of body art, this book takes the reader on a journey through China. From the mountains of Yunan, where the ethnic tribespeople still maintain their tradition of marking the face with butterfly designs that they believe will transport them to heaven in the afterlife; across the plains of China to the metropolis of Hong Kong and the equally colorful world of ancient mariner tattoos.China Tattoo is provocative, substantially researched, and filled with stunning images.
