    This is a great book. It’s that simple. If you’re at all interested in classic or vintage tattoos then let this be your first book on the subject, or if you have other tattoo topic books, then you need to add this to that collection.

    I was interested in a book on old school or vintage tattoos. My main purpose was to learn a little bit more about Sailor Jerry Collins and his influences. I thought maybe there would be some other interesting tidbits of information on the history of what we now consider “vintage tattoos” and maybe some cool pictures – what I got was an amazing surprise.

    There is so much fantastic and detailed information – none of it boring. The book takes you on an incredible journey through time, style, artists and even equipment.

    Even if you don’t know how to read, the pictures and old flash of these vintage tattoos are worth the price of admission … ok, the price of the book, but you get the point.

    Whether you’re looking for tattoo ideas, a tattoo history lesson or want to have a unique perspective on vintage tattoos – this is a must add to your bookshelf.

    Vintage Tattoos is an impressive compilation of true Americana. Exploring ink life from the carnival to the navy and throughout a century of beauty, icons, and curiosity, Carol Clerk brings an unbiased voyage of truly personal art and obsession.

    There is no shortage of tattoo books coming out these days.I liked this one because it dealt with old school flash which is my preference.A lot of interesting information and well illustrated.Quite a bit on George Burchett and his work which I found especially good.
