Thought this book would be better. A lot of photos and discussions on the trends and history of tattoos in Japan
Definitely high quality photos but I was hoping for something different.
Interesting but overall a little disappointing.

Huge, beautiful pictures of both traditional and modern-style tattoos. About half of the pictures are shot in studio, half are street photography, all are gorgeous. Not a whole lot of text, but what text there is, is interesting, sound, and highly informative. A must-have.

Lovely art, pictures and text. A notch above the usual less than great tattoo books. A must-have for anyone interested in Japanese ink. Real tattoos with real needles.
