So, what’s it all about?

Firstly, I have to say that I want to portray the tattoo community in a positive light. Though (or maybe because) tattooing has moved into society’s mainstream, more and more of the media are looking to sensationalise the more tawdry elements.

Beyond that, most tattoo art books are little more than body-part catalogues; I want to change the focus by showing real people behind the tattoos - those that have them, and those that create them. Ordinary people who happen to wear and/or create extraordinary art, not people whose character is defined by their ink.
