|SKIN SHOWS - THE ART OF TATTOO (WROBLEWSKI)|
|The myth of tattoo as the preserve of the backstreet artist and the sailor with ?MUM? on his biceps is exploded by Chris Wroblewski in this intriguing book of photographs. By representing the work of leading tattoo artists from London, San Francisco, Yokohama, Hong Kong, Vienna, Tokyo, Honolulu, Lausanne and Copenhagen, he gives an exotic insight into the colourful world of tattoo. It is a world in which ?body art? suggests the fusion of the erotic and the formal, producing a unique exciting art form, which is as infinitely variable as the imagination of the tattooists and their clients. The range of work presented points to a tattoo renaissance with the tattoo, the ultimate personal and permanent body decoration, blossoming as an artistic statement in its own right.
