Berndt's Photos are a Must

This 1994 book provides an excellent overview of modern American tattooing. Berndt's photos are what make this book, and the collections are well grouped. Sections include tribal, painting/portraits, imagination/fantasy, neotraditional, and "all the rest." This is tattooing as post-modern art, with tons of art school influences and present-day tribal interpretations throughout. Featured artists include Leo Zulueta, Don Ed Hardy, Jill Jordan, Alex Binnie, Fred Corbin, Eddie Deutsche. This book is also unique in that it was authored and photographed by women. Lautman and Berndt have created a great piece for your tattoo library.

Must-have for anyone who loves tatoo art

This is a must have book for anyone who loves the art of tattoo. The book features a wide variety of tattoo styles, and many unusual designs. The photography is excellent, so the details of each design can be seen clearly.Tattoo styles include tribal, fantasy, neo-traditional, paintings and a wide variety of others. One of my favorites is of a woman with beautiful butterfly wings covering her entire back. I also enjoyed several tattoos that were styled after Chinese sumi-e painting. The beautiful designs include many birds & a large fish with a woman. I found a circular tribal tattoo on a man's head to be interesting as well. Another of my favorites was a flourished bird on a man's back. At the end of the book there is a great section on the tattoo process, if you would like to get one for yourself. A list of other tattoo books & magazines was also helpful.

Some of the best tattoo photography I've seen.

The text of this book is short and sweet, but it's not really anything you won't find elsewhere. Where this book really shines is the photography - the photographs in this book are fantastic. If you want a long book on history, advice etc. then go elsewhere, but if you want a brief overview and some fantastic tattoos beuatifully displayed then this book is perfect.

worth your money!

this book is worth its money for the photographs alone. it features works done by some of the best tattooers of today. (e.g. don ed hardy & leo zulueta.) some other talents have been left out. but featuring them all would be near to impossible. if your main interest is looking at lots of tattoo photographs and are also interested in historical motives, i'd recommend hanky panky's "1000 tattoos".

Simply Beautiful.

The New Tattoo is nothing short of stunning. As a reference piece, it is very well researched and extremely representative of tattoo's various genres and artists. In terms of asthetics, the book is simply beautiful, boasting lustrous color and classy design. Of course, the highlight of the book is the tattoos, which are selected well and illustrate some of tattoo's finest works. This book is ideal for anyone who loves to wear art, and it is also a warm introduction for anyone not initiated into the world of ink slinging. The cover art by Fauser and Zueleta is worth the price alone. Just a gorgeous volume.
