    One thought on “100 Years of Tattoos”

    1. "With his tattooed face, South African born Jacobus Van Dyn looked like a colourful fairground attraction but the background he claimed for himself was much darker.

    2. The title said 100 hundred years of tattoos but it actually goes back around 300 years. The art form was embraced by a wide variety of cultural movements before moving into the mainstream. Soldiers, prisoners, outlaw bikers, hippies, and punk rockers all had tattoos that symbolized their lifestyles. McCombs spotlights several influential western artists including Lyle Tuttle, Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy, and others.It was an enjoyable read with lots of high quality photos.

    3. Un peu trop occidental. (ils parlent un peu des tatouages japonais, quand les tatoueurs occidentaux se sont intéressés à eux). Ça manquait de precisions, mais c'est toujours cools de voir toute la diversité de cet art.
