tattoo in japan.jpgThis weekend, I was asked about one of my fave Japanese tattooing tomes, aptly called Tattoo in Japan by Edition Reuss.

While I wrote about it for Needled.com, I wanted to post here as well because I feel this photo book is must for any serious tattoo collector.

Unlike many other Japanese tattoo books, it shows the full spectrum of tattoo art in Japan today from the traditional bodysuits adorning Yakuza to interpretations of Americana and tribal tattoo work by the new school of Japanese tattooists.

The 320-page hardcover can be ordered from here for 89 Euros or for $165 US from Last Gasp Books or 61 British Pounds from Amazon UK.

Check our Flickr photoset for a taste.

You'll be hearing more about Edition Reuss as they're publishing my upcoming book. More on that soon.
