Tattoo Behind the Needle PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tattoo Behind the Needle free pdf "Tattoo: Behind the Needle" takes the reader into the shop of twelve talented tattoo artists, including Brandon Bond, Amanda Wachob, Shannon Schober, Nate Beavers, each with their own distinct style, philosophy, and approach to tattoo art. This is an opportunity to learn how and where each artist learned his or her skills, where they find inspiration, and exactly how they create bright, colorful, living tattoos. Joy Surles, former editor of "Skin Art" magazine, and author of "Tattoo: From Idea to Ink" is the ideal author for this new title from Wolfgang Publications. Joy not only understands tattoos, but also has a discerning eye and the respect of the artists. With this kind of report, Joy is able to draw out each artist so that each interview provides more than just the basics of the artists education and experience, and includes personal insights and secret techniques. Each of these artists has a unique style, a style that is explained from both an artistic and a technical style in this new book from Wolfgang. Technical details include each artists choice of tattoo machines and inks. Because of Joy's experience, all these details and insights are explained in language that is easily understood both by fellow artists and tattoo aficionados. In fact, this entire book has enormous appeal to individuals inside and outside the profession. While there are plenty of tattoo books that offer tattoo flash, or that discuss the beauty of the art, there are very few that encourage the artists to explain the why of the art, the things that make their personal art unique, and the overall state-of-the-art. "Tattoo: Behind the Needle" uses over 300 color photographs to illustrate each artists style and specific artist-to-artist differences. In-shop-photos help to match a human face to each interviewed artist.
