In ‘Black & Grey Tattoo: From Street Art to Fine Art’, a stunning three-volume set curated by Marissa Kakoulas, author of ‘Black Tattoo Art’ and the ‘Needles and Sins‘ blog, we find a disciplined look at what might be called the ‘original’ tattoo colorway. With each of the three books focusing on a specific theme; ‘Traditional’, ‘Dark/Horror’, and ‘Photorealism’, the collection maintains an editorial sense and aesthetic restraint that is often lost when looking to such an expansive subject.
With beautiful high-quality images, artist profiles, and cultural examinations, this book is a must have for anyone who appreciates this time-honored mode of artistic expression. For more information and to purchase the book, head over to its publisher, Edition Reuss.
