KINGS OF SKIN GRAFFITI TATTOO BOOK BY ALAN KET
Many graffiti writers in their quest to improve their artistic talent and earn an honest living have naturally gravitated towards other artistic endeavors. Since the 1970s these artists have made the leap to become muralists, fashion designers, art directors, and as of late tattoo artists. Similar to the graffiti movement in which the artists battle with one another in the public eye to be the best and most respected the same goes within the tattoo world. These spray paint technicians with their color mastery and wild styles are making a splash worldwide and changing the face of the tattoo business by adding their bold letters and thus creating a new visual language for the skin. A language filled with graffiti style burners and characters that are a departure from the standard tribal design and sailor styles. Join us in celebrating the artwork of the best artists that have transitioned from the streets to the tattoo shops around the world including Jason Kundel, Mr. Went, Med, Ces, Chucho, and many more.
