9780671242633: Spider Webb's Pushing Ink: The Fine art of Tattooing

A classic reborn, here is a book that opened new territory in 1979, revealing the bodies of those who patronized underground artists. The bodies of these tattooed men and women stand in testament to an ancient art, long forbidden in the West. This is a celebration of tattoo art, the artists, and the bold canvases who dance across these pages with unabashed joy in their beautifully adorned flesh. It is the story of the fight to legalize and legitimize an art undeniably beautiful in design, bold in color, and stamped indelibly upon God's own earthly temple.

About the Author:

Spider Webb thrust tattooed bodies into the limelight and helped legitimize the art, when Pushing Ink first hit the streets in 1979. Webb has lectured internationally, and his paintings and photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums, as well as on bodies, around the world. By day he operates a tattoo parlor at the Coney Island Museum, New York. By night, Webb fronts the outrageous Electric Crutch band and manufactures one-of-a-kind tattoo machines
