"Alive: Tattoo Portraits" by Julien Lachaussee
Parisian photographer, Julien Lachaussee, spent six years shooting tattoo artists and collectors from all walks of life, and the result of his work is now culminating in a limited edition art book entitled Alive: Tattoo Portraits published by Editions Eyrolles.
Alive is comprised of 146 portraits in color and black & white, and in Polaroid and analog photography. Subjects include body builders, strippers and a number of tattoo artists including Laura Satana, Lea Nahon, and Tin Tin (shown below) who also wrote the foreword.
Julien and Eyrolles have launched a pre-sale special of the book on Ulule. Those who order the book on Ulule within the next 19 days will receive Alive (in its designer box) and a signed and numbered print. Fund raising through Ulule will go towards offsetting the printing costs, but the goal of 45 sales must be met.
You can pre-order Alive for 160 Euros for its November release date. Also find more of Julien's work in Sang Bleu and Inked magazines among others.
