5 out of 5 (1 rating)


This is a stunning photography collection on the use of typography in tattoo art, with an introduction and commentary provided by designer, Ina Saltz.

This title will greatly appeal to graphic designers, typographers, the tattoo community, and a hip, pop-culturally savvy audience.

The book has the written messages divided up into the following categories: Literature, poetry, lyrics; Typography; self-expression; self love; love; politics; religion; belief systems; and homage.

This book captures the trend of "message tattoos" and explores the idealogy behind the letters involved in this indelible committment.

Review by

A wonderful book with some amazing stories about why people get text tattoos - from the mundane "I heart mum" to the extraordinary account of how one author/artist is publishing her very special book on the living skin of others.
