Tattooing From Japan To The West

Horitaka Interviews Contemporary Artists

by Takahiro Kitamura (Horitaka)

A reknowned tattoo artist in his own right, Takahiro Kitamura (a.k.a. Horitaka), compiled over three years of his writings for Tattoo Life magazine into this volume of interviews with twenty-six of the world's leading contemporary tattoo artists.

Living legends like Don Ed Hardy, Doc Forest, Horiyoshi III, Paul Jeffries, Bob Roberts, and Mike Malone shed their pioneers' light on the tattoo's evolution from a sub-cultural phenomenon to a mainstream trend, and explore tattooing as a "finer" art form. Their artwork runs the gamut, from full Japanese body suits to traditional Americana hearts and roses. Other artists profiled include: Freddy Corbin, Theo Jak, Grime, Scott Sylvia, Chris Garver, Horitomo, Jill Bonny, Scott Bryant, George Campise, Chris Conn, Paco Excel, Robert Hernandez, Eiland Hogan, Klem, Chad Koeplinger, Jason Kundell, Jason McAfee, Brent Patten, Juan Puente, and Jesse Tuesday. With over 425 exciting color photos of their work, from tattoos to paintings, this book is an invaluable tattoo art resource.
