This new exciting book explores the meanings behind popular tattoo images. Inkluded has one free copy to give away to a lucky reader.
‘The Tattoo Dictionary’ is an A-Z of 200 popular tattoos and tattoo terms. From sugar skulls to barbed wire, find out the long-forgotten stories behind the world’s most common pieces of tattoo art.
What does your dagger tattoo actually represent? We see recurring tattoo designs every day on bodies around us, often including our own, but sometimes fail to have ever understood the symbol in its entirety. The Tattoo Dictionary allows us to enjoy and appreciate tattoos on a whole new level.
As well as discussing actual imagery (swastika, compass, bird, etc.), the guide also takes us through the definitions of industry jargon (black and grey, scratcher, cover-up, traditional, etc.). The collection is a much-needed dictionary in which many of these common terms are explained.
This informative publication was written by tattoo journalist and editor of Tattoo Master magazine Trent Aitken-Smith. Entries are accompanied by 100 beautiful illustrations drawn by tattoo artist Ashley Tyson.
The Tattoo Dictionary is available to buy on Amazon.
