Here's a little more information about the book I was talking about.
Tattoos are more popular than ever. Therefore many books about the art form and the associated cultures are published. While some focus on the artists, the tattooers from Holland have never been documented together in a bona fide book.
Dutch Tattoo Studios fills that void, by portraying 30 renowned artists and their work. Colorful characters from the older generation, such as Greg Orie, and the ones who followed in their footsteps, for instance Rob Admiraal.
They all share an unrelenting love for their craft, but each of them has
different preferences, in tattooing as well as in life.
The creator of Dutch Tattoo Studios is André van Zomeren. Since 1995 he’s been traveling the globe, from South America to Asia. With 12 years experience as a photographer and even more in getting tattooed, he was well-equipped to take on such a massive project. Dutch Tattoo Studios will be available in quality bookstores from 23-05-2011.
The book will be launched at the Breda Tattoo Convention, so make sure to drop by and get yourself a copy.
Or you can pre-order it online at Dutch Tattoo Studios.
We haven't seen the book yet but we are pretty excited and can't wait to see it.
