    Title: Black & Grey Tattoo
    Sub-title: Volume 1: Traditional Black & Grey
    By (author): Marisa Kakoulas, Edgar Hoill
    ISBN10-13: 3934020879 : 9783934020870
    Text in English, German & Spanish. This volume is somewhat of a misnomer as it's simply called "black & grey" in the tattoo community. But now that greyscale tattooing has moved in different artistic directions, the "traditional" label is used to set it apart from its offshoots. Traditional black & grey denotes tattoo art that has stayed true to its roots -- a time when home-made machines made of cassette motors and guitar strings dipped in India ink and wash were used to mark skin. The essence of black & grey art is captured in the photography of co-author Edgar Hoill. Select imagery, with quotes from the artists and collectors, leads this volume followed by interviews with Jack Rudy, the Godfather of Black & Grey; as well as tattoo prodigy Jesus "Chuey" Quintanar. Their stories and tattoo work precede the gallery, which includes tattoos from other pioneers of the style: Freddy Negrete, Brian Everett, and Mark Mahoney.

    Edited by: Edition Reuss
    ISBN10-13: 3934020887 : 9783934020887
    Text in English, German & Spanish. This volume delves into personal demons relayed on skin. Paul Booth, often described as the "Dark Lord of Tattooing", reveals some of the reasons why people get these tattoos as well as how his own demons have driven his art. Other tattoos pay homage to horror in pop culture. Artist Xu Zhicheng of Tianzhilong Tattoo in Beijing says in his interview that he finds inspiration for his large-scale dark work in vampire films, not personal angst. In this chapter, you will find everything from shrunken heads to Frankensteins to even famous tattoo artists rendered as zombies.

    Title: Black & Grey Tattoo
    Sub-title: Volume 3: The Photorealism
    By (author): Marisa Kakoulas, Edgar Hoill
    ISBN10-13: 3934020895 : 9783934020894
    Text in English, German & Spanish. This volume encapsulates work that takes photorealistic art and translates it on the body. While the other chapters also feature realism, this chapter concentrates on portraiture, scenery, and even fantastical images rendered in true-to-life tableaux. Two artists renowned in this style, Bob Tyrrell and Andy Engel, talk about how they honed their craft and even offer tips on how others can do so as well. Their interviews are followed by work that has invigorated the tattoo community with the possibilities of mastering a difficult art on a difficult canvas.

    Title: Black & Grey Tattoo - 3 Volume Set
    Sub-title: From Street Art to Fine Art
    By (author): Marisa Kakoulas, Edgar Hoill
    ISBN10-13: 3934020852 : 9783934020856
    3 volumes in slipcase. Text in English, Spanish & German. "Black & Grey Tattoo" is a mammoth work. Comprising over a thousand pages, it is one of the largest -- if not the largest -- tattoo book ever published! Its three large-format volumes are contained inside a lavish and sturdy hardcover box. The set explores a monochrome art form through a kaleidoscope of the most widely diverse interpretations and craftsmanly techniques, performed by tattoo artists from all parts of the world. This tattoo tome explores the origins of black & grey tattooing -- from the prisons and streets of LA to its contemporary resonance on Hollywood's red carpets, at heavy metal music festivals, and in private ateliers from Budapest to Beijing. While rendered in just shades of grade, the spectrum of design is vast: Aztec warriors, fierce harpies, family portraits, religious icons and permanent shrines to celebrities adorn these pages. The common thread among them all is their inventive exposition and mastery of execution. Divided into three volumes: "Traditional Black & Grey", "Dark/Horror" and "Photorealism". Indeed, there is cross-pollination among the different styles, but the breakdown is not just for easier lifting of this monster collection. It is to show how tattoos with similar stylistic elements are interpreted differently by stellar artists around the world. The books also present the fine art -- including paintings and charcoals -- of many of those featured, although the tattoos themselves should be considered fine art. The first volume, Traditional Black & Grey, is somewhat of a misnomer as it's simply called "black & grey" in the tattoo community. But now that greyscale tattooing has moved in different artistic directions, the "traditional" label is used to set it apart from its offshoots. Traditional black & grey denotes tattoo art that has stayed true to its roots -- a time when home-made machines made of cassette motors and guitar strings dipped in India ink and wash were used to mark skin. The essence of black & grey art is captured in the photography of co-author Edgar Hoill. Select imagery, with quotes from the artists and collectors, leads this volume followed by interviews with Jack Rudy, the Godfather of Black & Grey; as well as tattoo prodigy Jesus "Chuey" Quintanar. Their stories and tattoo work precede the gallery, which includes tattoos from other pioneers of the style: Freddy Negrete, Brian Everett, and Mark Mahoney. The second volume, Dark/Horror delves into personal demons relayed on skin. Paul Booth, often described as the "Dark Lord of Tattooing," reveals some of the reasons why people get these tattoos as well as how his own demons have driven his art. Other tattoos pay homage to horror in pop culture. Artist Xu Zhicheng of Tianzhilong Tattoo in Beijing says in his interview that he finds inspiration for his large-scale dark work in vampire films, not personal angst. In this chapter, you'll find everything from shrunken heads to Frankensteins to even famous tattoo artists rendered as zombies. The third and final volume, Photorealism encapsulates work that takes photorealistic art and translates it on the body. While the other chapters also feature realism, this chapter concentrates on portraiture, scenery, and even fantastical images rendered in true-to-life tableaux. Two artists renowned in this style, Bob Tyrrell and Andy Engel, talk about how they honed their craft and even offer tips on how others can do so as well. Their interviews are followed by work that has invigorated the tattoo community with the possibilities of mastering a difficult art on a difficult canvas. All three volumes in this one collection are meant to inspire, showing just how beautiful black & grey tattoo art can be. Also available as individual volumes. Volume 1: 9783934020870 (3934020879), 99.99; Volume 2: 9783934020887 (3934020887), 99.99; Volume 3: 9783934020894 (3934020895), 71.99}

    Title: Day of the Dead Tattoo Artwork Collection
    Sub-title: Skulls, Catrinas & Culture of the Dead
    By (author): Edgar Hoill
    ISBN10-13: 3943105253 : 9783943105254
    All of the artwork in this collection -- Skulls, Catrinas and Culture of the Dead share a common theme: a lust for life and reverence of death -- all explored in engaging paintings, drawings, photography and sculpture. This book represents a veritable compendium of skulls and Catrinas with impressive artistic scope, and a valuable source of inspiration for contemporary tattoo artwork. Skulls and Catrinas are the most significant attributes of Mexico's traditional celebration of The Day of the Dead, El Dia de los Muertos. Such pleasures are brilliantly displayed in the artwork featured, in full vibrant colour, on the pages of this book. In this massive hardcover, Edgar Hoill has assembled renowned tattooists from around the world, who uniquely interpret the icons of this sacred day. The Calaveras, literally, "skulls" are artfully manifested in various forms among the artwork. Images of Catrina, the covert queen of the dead, within this book demonstrate how the artists view death as something to be laughed at and not feared. Also populating these pages are beautiful women with skeletal features transposed over their faces, bringing to mind the joy and suffering of love. Tattoo artists represented in this book: Jacky Rudy, Horiyoshi III, Italia Ruotolo, Chuey Quintanar, Colin Dale, Christin Hock Dolorosa, Dimitri, Paco Arias, Fredi Tut, Greg D., Rask Opticon, Derek Noble, Benjamin Estrada, Pablo Xno, Miguel Morales, Shige, Martin Martinez Castro, Roy Palma, Frank Chavez, Jesse Hernandez, Richie, Chamaco, Manson, Elvia Guadian, Paul Barrientos, Phillip Spearman, Ricardo Mendez, Abraham Ortega, AR Ink Bombers, El Chocky, Rob Struven, Diego Garcia, Gabriel Frias, Tony Boyd, Dr. Lakra, Steve Soto, Robert Atkinson, Mike, Roxi, Osiris, Stef De Bad, Dermafilia familia, Dan Chase, Indio Reyes, Chia, Krazy K, Tatu Baby, Khan, Javier Pina, Colin Dale, David Dettleoff, Jonathan Fernandez, Edgar Alvarez, Rich Martinez, Elvia Guadian, Paco Arias, Chuy Ortega, Electroshock, Pablo Ash, Kiki Platas, Liber Riot, El Chanok, Genziana, Jason Wheeler, Claire Octopus, Chamaco, Tony Mancia, Joe Romero, Ben Corn, Rojo, Paola Maria, Brian Everett, Vampiro, Juan Metal, El Chocky, Manuel Lorenzana, Paul Nguyen, Gator, Steph D., Rob Hill, Grim, El Buster, Manuel Valenzuela, Tracey, Tuich, Juan Arreguin, Kasuyoshi, Fide, Simone Pfaff, Justin Hendrick, Henri B., Yushi Takei, Homero Reyes, Jorge Issac Trujeque Gutierrez, Peque, Horikazu, Ricardo Mendez, Eric San, Federico Ruiz, Nervio, Colin Dale, Pedro Alvarez, Heidi Scheck, Mouse Lopez, Hector, Dermafilia familia, El Will, Nelson Acido Garcia, Morof, Tuer, Italia Ruotolo, Roxi Tattoo, Alex 'Kofuu' Reinke Horikitsune, Ina Trece, Sodapop, Karrona, Catalyst Butcher, Mike Sirot, Tofino Tattoo, Gajin Fujita, Steve Martin, Chino De Tepito, Will Contreras, Chuy Espinoza, El Whyner, Antonio Mejia, Listo Tj, Shane Tyner, Defer, Christina Ramos, Robert Cervantes, Shane Modica, Miguel Morales, Charlie Machete, Pedro Alvarez, El Sukre, Ching, Ocelotzin, Tony Chakal Serrano, Dawn Silva, JJ., Rudy Chee, Lorena Vuyovich, Carlos Macias, Chino De Tepito, Nelson Acido Garcia, Pedro Alvarez, Naualli Russo, Tatu Baby, Andres Juarez, Javier Hurtado, Tony Salgado, Horitaka, Aaron Hernandez, Melissa Reyes.

    Title: Famous Eyes
    By (author): Daniel Fuchs, Geo Fuchs
    ISBN10-13: 3934020062 : 9783934020061
    This book offers an unprecedented documentation of our era's most famous people, including artists, photographers, designers, creators of culture, musicians, actors and architects. Each of these people was present with his or her full energy and enthusiasm when Daniel and Geo Fuchs used a box-like Polaroid camera, which had originally been developed for eye doctors, to produce these creative highlights. The beginning of each session was devoted to the project of taking an extreme close-up of the celebrity's eye. The next step was to stage a second image, which usually integrated the first portrait of the person's eye. The resultant photographic artworks are every bit as diverse as are the personalities of the photographed individuals. These portraits accurately reflect the many facets of life: from gorgeous and aesthetic, through crazy and shrill, to desolate and thought-provoking. A representative collection of these fascinating photos is available now in this large-format photo book. Book and slipcase. Text in English, German and French.

    Title: Island of Cats -- Hydra
    By (photographer): Gabriela Staebler
    ISBN10-13: 3943105342 : 9783943105346
    Text in English, German & Greek. Hydra Island cats! Embark on a photographical journey to the Greek island of Hydra in the Mediterranean Sea with this photo book -- this island is a hot tip for all cat-lovers. Hydra is a magic and sleepy spot with wild groups of cats and wheedling velvet paws. Cats are simply everywhere here -- in colours of all shades, at the harbour, in the town and in natural surroundings. They belong to the local residents' everyday life, and tourists love them. It was "love at first sight" when photographer and cat-lover Gabriela Staebler first set foot on Hydra and succumbed to the beguiling charm of the island's cats. While roving through the island, she took impressive snapshots of the cats and created idyllic portraits. Her best photographs are compiled in this wonderful photo book. Additionally, cat-lovers are given further interesting information like, for example, the touching stories of HydraArk, an organisation for the protection of cats and other animals. Its non-profit-making commitment to the welfare of street cats on Hydra and the loving help of volunteers are rays of hope for all cat-lovers. You cannot but love the wheedling little tigers of Hydra: if you give your love to a cat, it will be requited thousandfold. Hydra is a place of tranquillity and inspiration. The island has attracted lots of artists and celebrities -- among them Sophia Loren and Leonard Cohen. Motorized vehicles are not allowed on Hydra, and no discotheques either. What you may enjoy instead are breathtaking views to the sea, tranquillity, pristine nature and free-roaming cats. Life here goes on at a more leisurely pace. Hydra's world is more colourful and cheerful than any other. During the summer months, people from all over the world sit outside the taverns. Hydra is also a wild natural beauty and a paradise at any season of the year. The cats on the island are looking forward to your visit and they welcome you by uttering a loud "meeeow"!

    Title: Kalinga Tattoo
    Sub-title: Ancient & Modern Expressions of the Tribal
    By (author): Lars Krutak
    ISBN10-13: 3934020860 : 9783934020863
    Text in English & German. This is a photographic masterpiece that explores the vanishing art of Kalinga tribal tattooing in the remote mountains of the northern Philippines. Combining the visionary talents of numerous international photographers and the words and stories of nearly fifty Kalinga elders, Kalinga Tattoo is the first book to tell the story of this incredibly rich tradition of indigenous body art that is believed to be 1,000 years old. Here's a rare trove of tattoo motifs, variations and interpretations which can reveal new perspectives for every interested tattooist. The journey begins with tattoo anthropologist Dr Lars Krutak's first encounter with the last Kalinga tattoo artist, the 91-year-old Whang-Od, and is followed by the moving poetry and song of tattooed Kalinga author and elder Natividad Sugguiyao. Sugguiyao's narratives provide an insider's perspective regarding the history and significance of Kalinga batok (tattoo), and they establish new ways of reading the messages encoded in this ancient art form of the skin. Krutak continues with an historical exploration entitled "History of Kalinga Tattoo Art" that focuses on those cultural institutions that were deeply intertwined with Kalinga tattooing itself. Dramatic images of tattooed men and women taken over the last 100 years and colourful village scenes and landscapes accentuate the chapter. Lars' detailed study into the significance of Kalinga tattooing proceeds with an illustrated discussion of the artistic motifs that comprise Kalinga tattoo art. This chapter, "Kalinga Tattooing Motifs" is an absolute must read for anyone seeking knowledge (spiritual or otherwise) of the real roots of tribal tattooing practices that are largely disappearing around the world today. Because warrior culture, headhunting, and religious ritual permeated nearly every facet of Kalinga tattooing practice, "Warrior Culture of the Kalinga" focuses on these customs. Krutak recounts his experiences with Kalinga warriors (old and new) and breathes life into long-forgotten Kalinga literature revolving around human sacrifice and other ceremonies associated with the human hunt. The nature of the research is outstanding and wonderfully detailed, and the words (and actions) of his Kalinga informants are truly unforgettable. What follows these texts is a remarkably beautiful photographic exhibition of the last generation of Kalinga warriors in vivid colour who earned their tattoos on the field of battle. "The Last Kalinga Tattoo Artist" looks at the life and work of Whang-Od, the last Kalinga mambabatok or tattooist, who dedicated her life to the art of her ancestors. Krutak, who lived with the master artisan for nearly two weeks, exposes for the first time in history the biography of this unique woman who for over seventy years has plied the skins of countless generations of Kalinga men and women with thorns and other natural tools. Finally, "Mark of the Four Waves Tribe" documents the artistic achievements of a growing number of young Filipino-Americans who since 1998 have each made a conscious individual effort to revive the indigenous tattooing traditions of the Kalinga and other tribal peoples of the Philippines. Whether through hand-tapping, hand-poking, or machined work, the Tribe's dedication to "The Movement" has resulted in the revitalisation of timeworn tribal designs with new design concepts that are beginning to approach the longstanding accomplishments of Polynesian artists who guided the tattoo renaissance across the Pacific in the early 1980s. For Krutak and Sugguiyao, the Tribe represents the very best of contemporary tribal tattoo culture because they dynamically express the enduring strength of time-tested indelible traditions that firmly anchor indigenous and modern concepts of identity on the skin for all to see.
