Black Tattoo Art Volume 1 (2009) is the first art book to feature the very best in blackwork tattooing. This large format 536-page hardcover (weighing nearly 8 lbs) is a photographic journey across the globe from Borneo to Belgium, Argentina to Athens, New York to New Zealand and beyond in search of avant-garde tattoo art that pays homage to the ancient roots of tattooing in their contemporary interpretations. No other publication has curated the work of so many esteemed international tattooists working in black ink and gathered them into one comprehensive volume.

The journey begins with a look at the history of tattooing before featuring black tattoo portfolios divided into the following chapters: Neotribal, Dotwork, Art Brut, Traditional Revival and Thai/Buddhist.
