By Takahiro Kitamura.

From the curator of the Museum's upcoming exhibition, Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in a Modern World (March 8 - September 14, 2014).

Meet 26 leading contemporary tattoo artists. Interviews with artists plus over 425 exciting color photos of their artwork, from tattoos to paintings, make this an invaluable tattoo resource. This is a viable contribution to tattoo history worldwide, containing insightful interviews with living legends like Don Ed Hardy, Doc Forest, Horiyoshi III, Paul Jeffries, Bob Roberts, and Mike Malone. These tattoo pioneers shed light on the tattoo's evolution from a sub-cultural phenomenon to a mainstream trend, and explore tattooing as a "finer" art form. Their artwork runs the gamut, from full Japanese body suits to traditional Americana hearts and roses. Paper: 160 pp.
