Tattoo Behind the Needle, takes the reader into the shop of 12 talented young tattoo artists. This is an opportunity to learn how and where each artist learned his or her skills, who they turn to for inspiration, and exactly how they create bright, colorful, living tattoos. Behind the Needle includes interviews with well-known artists like Brandon Bond, Amanda Wachob and Shannon Schober. Each has a distinctive style, a unique philosophy, and a very personal approach to tattoo art. Author Joy Surles gives each artist one chapter to explain who they are and what they do. A series of photographs illustrate and compliment what words cannot. The interviews, combined with photos of the artists at work, help to make this more than just a book about tattoos. Tattoo, Behind the Needle, is more like spending a day in the studio with Brandon Bond or Amanda Wachob.
