    The 32 internationally acclaimed tattoo artists in this collection have dedicated their skills to developing the art of tattoo. Representing nine tattoo friendly countries, including France, Japan, Italy, and the U.S., these artists draw from varied art movements and styles in their approach: Baroque, Cubism, Art Nouveau, Realism, Surrealism, Pop Art, Expressionism, and more. Inspiration from seemingly unexpected sources, like hip hop, punk rock, horror films, and biomechanics inform their work: as such, they filter everything through the artful lens that is themselves. They are tattoo; tattoo is them. Having perfected their craft on the human body, these artists are now translating their talents to multiple endeavors, proliferating the art of tattoo and stretching its reach to other mediums: printmaking, lithography, film, theater production, toys, children's book illustration, and hand-made tattoo machines, as well as clothing, skateboard, vinyl record and poster design. More than 350 images, including artist portraits and varied examples of their work, make this book essential for lovers of tattoo and art alike. Tattoo is you, too.

    With this second volume of "Tattooisme", the frontiers of tattoo art are revisited. The 32 artists participating in this artbook offer a unique journey and a fresh look at the world-wide tattoo art revolution. This volume shows the extensive possibilities of the styles and careers of the artists appearing in this volume -- from art nouveau to American old school, from book design to developing clothing brands. We are proud to present them all, from the most well-known, key-figures of the international tattoo scene to the newcomers steeped in culture outside tattooing. That's what "Tattooisme" is the door that opens onto a global art inspired by other artistic movements to finally create something new, a unique art, which then influences other creative pools. Over the years the history of art has presented us artistic movements such as Symbolism, Japonism, Cubism, Expressionism, Surrealism and many others. Now we can add "Tattooisme", the artistic roots of which feed the tattooists of today and mix with other cultures, whether they are urban, ethnic, modern or ancestral. This is the logical result of the creative journey.
