Tattoos: New Trends in Tattoo Designs

Author(s): Aymara Arreaza

Design

With almost 5000 years of history, tattoos have been updated, renewed and adapted at a much faster rate than other similar artistic expressions. Present in cultures and times as diverse as Ancient Egypt, 10th century Japan, Borneo and Java in the 18th century and of course, modern Western culture, tattoos have been banned and encouraged, they have adopted ritual meanings or they have been considered as simple decorative elements, they have been associated with privileged castes in society or the world of crime...This book is a faithful testimony to this artistic and social legacy, as it combines hundreds of pieces of work from the most outstanding international tattoo artists, those who have used the human body as a canvas for their work.
