These electrifying portraits by acclaimed photographer Alex MacNaughton prove in the most eloquent way that tattoos are more than skin deep. The centuries-old art of tattooing has become one of the modern world's most exciting modes of self-expression. Fascinated by the ways body art reflects an individual's personality, MacNaughton set out to find people whose ornate tattoos tell a story. The result is a wonderfully dynamic collection of portraits that uniquely celebrates the art of tattooing. Each individual is introduced through a full-body, full-page photograph, showcasing the fashion and style which complement the body art. MacNaughton presents gorgeously detailed images of the tattoos themselves, accompanied by personal reflections on the subjects' choice of tattoos, the stories behind them, and the tattoo artists they admire most. The result is a beautiful, sensitive, and exciting exploration of the world of body art, from one of the most successful photographers of urban life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book NOT hardcover I just got this in today, have read the intro and browsed through so far. First off this book is NOT hardcover as I thought it was since that is what it states. It's different from all of my tattoo books but in a good way. First one that I have come by that focus's on the people who wear the tattoos and not the artist. It shows wide variety of tattoos, some poorly done and some very well done, which I love because they are everyday people who love some of their tattoos and regret others. Something a lot of us can relate to.
