TTT: Tattoo

TTTism, Nick Schonberger


Over the past decade, tattoos have become one of the most popular forms of visual culture in the world. TTT: Tattoo is a survey of over 300 of the best international tattooers working today, including Duncan X, Tomas Tomas, Scott Campbell, the Leu family and Stephanie Tamez. Exploring the connections between tattoo culture today and seminal figures and developments in the recent past, the book examines how the historical styles of this most enduring art form blend into new ones.
