David Mccomb, Laurence King Publishing Softcover $29.95 (288pp), 978-1-78067-476-6
What used to be the cause célèbre of sailors, convicts, circus acts, and bikers now colors the flesh of 20 percent of Americans—yes, tattoos are suddenly hip and fashionable. With 300 striking photographs, this coffee-table-worthy project documents a century of tat evolution, including lively commentary on artists, techniques, designs, and culture of the body-ink set. Fascinating stuff!
