Review: Tattoo Art & Design

User Review  - Aljan - Goodreads

This book should be called Body Graffiti or Graphic Design Does the Body, certainly not Tattoo Art and Design. It is full of graphic, advertising, clip art type art and NONE of the tattoos are real. They are ALL wet and stick temporary tattoos. Read full review

User Review  - Jessica Edmiston - Goodreads

This book isn't so much about tattoos as it is a collection of work examples from various designers and illustrators on a theme. Some gems within. Read full review
