9780061684388: High Voltage Tattoo

High Voltage Tattoo is a graphic perspective on today's global tattoo culture by Kat Von D, star of The Learning Channel's L.A. Ink and one of the most talented and popular artists working today. Designed in a style that is reminiscent of a handmade Gothic journal with its red padded cover, ornate typography, and parchmentlike pages, it throws the door wide open to tattooing culture in the way only an insider like Kat can.

High Voltage Tattoo traces Kat's career as an artist, from early childhood influences to recent work, along with examples of what inspires her, information about the show and her shop, her sketches, and personal tattoos. The book goes deep into tattoo process and culture: readers can see up close the pigments, the tools, and the making of complex, even collaborative, tattoos.

With a foreword by Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx, the book features images and stories about celebrities, rockers, pro skaters, and everyday citizens, including Slayer's Kerry King, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Margaret Cho, Jackass' Bam Margera, David Letterman, and many others. It profiles and showcases the work of artists Kat has selected from all over the world, her interviews with people who have compelling tattoos and stories, and amazing images of extraordinary tattoo work. Numerous portfolios throughout the book showcase a range of relevant subjects, from the black and gray portrait work for which Kat is famous to a popular tattoo theme, such as the rose or biblical images. There is a knockout ten-page full-body spread of Kat—clad in a yellow bikini and seven-inch, rhinestone-studded red stilettos—that catalogs in detail all her personal tattoos on her front, back, left, and right sides—even her hands and head.

The charismatic Kat Von D, the star of LA Ink, with writer Anthony Bozza (author of best-sellers Slash and Tommyland ) opens the door to the world of contemporary tattooing, the way only a true insider can. The book will be targeted to the tattoo audience, particularly the younger demographic that actively gets tattoos. It will include Kat s story, what inspires her, information about her show and her shop, her sketches, and her personal tattoos (she s a walking tattoo). The thrust of the book is on her point of view on tattooing now: the work she finds inspirational, past and present; great tattoo artists, from a classic artist like Sailor Jerry to people she admires who are working around the world.The book will feature the work of and profiles of/interviews with a range of contemporary tattoo artists. It will also include lots of profiles of /interviews with people who have interesting tattoos and all the stories behind them, which is a very intriguing aspect of her show. The book will have a strong voyeuristic, human interest factor along with a wealth of great line art and photography, which is being shot for the book by Lionel Deloy. Finally, the book will include humourous visual thematic portfolios of Kat s work and aspects of tattooing she finds compelling. The examples include: Kat s portrait tattoos (for which she is famous); great work in typography, back pieces, memorials, body suits, and more. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780061684388
