attoo – Behind the Needle, takes the reader into the shop of twelve
talented tattoo artists. This is an opportunity to learn how and
where each artist learned his or her skills, where they find
inspiration, and exactly how they create bright, colorful, living
tattoos. Joy Surles, former editor of Skin Art magazine, and author
of Tattoo, from Idea to Ink, is the ideal author for this new title
from Wolfgang Publications. Joy not only understands tattoos, but
also has a discerning eye and the respect of the artists. With this
kind of report, Joy is able to draw out each artist so that each
interview provides more than just the basics of the artist’s
education and experience, and includes personal insights and secret
techniques. Each of these artists has a unique style, a style that
is explained from both an artistic and a technical style in this
new book from Wolfgang. Technical details include each artist’s
choice of tattoo machines and inks. Because of Joy’s experience,
all these details and insights are explained in language that is
easily understood both by fellow artists and tattoo aficionados. In
fact, this entire book has enormous appeal to individuals inside
and outside the profession. While there are plenty of tattoo books
that offer tattoo flash, or that discuss the beauty of the art,
there are very few that encourage the artists to explain the why of
the art, the things that make their personal art unique, and the
overall state of the art. Tattoo – Behind the Needle, uses over 300
color photographs to illustrate each artist’s style and specific
artist-to-artist differences. In-shop-photos help to match a human
face to each interviewed artist. Wolfgang Publications presents
this book on 144 pages, each one measuring 8-1/2 by 11 inches.
