About this title

Synopsis:

This classic book will turn heads turn. Images of over a hundred heavily tattooed people from the early decades of the 20th century show proud carnival and circus performers, sailors, entertainers, and who knows, the girl next door? The Introduction is by Marcia Tucker, Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the author provided material for the 1999 New York Natural History Museum's Body Art exhibition that confirmed tattoos as just one type of body decoration found worldwide. Here is an excellent opportunity for today's tattoo enthusiasts to see how the earlier generations did it.

About the Author:

Spider Webb, M.F.A., has work exhibited in galleries and museums and on bodies around the world. When not operating a tattoo parlor at the Coney Island Museum, New York, he invents new ways to create beautiful skin art.
