Somehow in the past 30 years tattoos have went from an underground taboo to a mainstream”thing to do”. A new publication, Forever: The New Tattoo, dives face first into tattoo in our modern day culture.
The rapid growth of the tattoo movement, has evolved the community with influences from the world of fashion, art, visual culture and traditional tattoo artwork. All of these changes aren’t welcome by all in the field but it has allowed the scene to become the most innovative and diverse it has ever been.
The book goes further than just slapping pages upon pages of tattoo pictures, even though there are some high quality pics, by providing in-depth analysis of the contemporary tattoo culture. Costing only $32 this book is a must cop.
