Giveaway: Tattoo World 2013 Calendar
I have another giveaway for you from my own personal stash: the 2013 Tattoo World calendar, which I curated for Abrams Books.
Two readers will received the 12x12 wall calendar, which features more than 100 tattoo photos from the world's best artists -- too many to list here. The calendar is based on the Tattoo World hardcover, written by Michael Kaplan and edited by yours truly.
Each month is organized by theme; for example, December is all about the dragon and how different artists interpret it, from Colin Dale's Nordic mythology to Mike Rubendall's Japanese-influenced creations. Every image is credited right underneath with the artists' names and their websites, so you will know right away who did it and where to see more. My role in the calendar was deciding on the artists and pool of images for the designers to choose from. I would have liked there to be less tattoos per month so that the images could be much bigger, but the publishers felt it was better to have as many pix as possible.
But hell, I'm giving two away and they retail online and at major book stores (like Barnes & Noble) for just $13.99.
We'll play it the usual way but with a twist. Two winners will be selected randomly from those who comment on this post in our Needles & Sins Syndicate Group on Facebook or hitting up @NeedlesandSins on Twitter. BUT the comment/Tweet should be about what you'd like to read on this blog in the new year. It need not be specific; something like "greater convention coverage" or "more naked tattooed men, please" will do. On January 17, 2013, we'll put all the names of the commenters into Randomized.com to pick the winners.
