DT_cover

Hands up who likes Denmark.

Hands up who likes tattoos.

Hands up who likes cool books.

Well today is your lucky day because ‘Danish Tattooing – Director’s Cut’ has all your Scando-tatt-art bases covered in one beautifully put together, ink-injected tome. This is a seriously in-depth look at the evolution of the distinctive Danish tattooing scene from the 1890s right up to modern day. With fascinating profiles of legendary Danish tattooists alongside their own hair-raising anecdotes alongside striking illustrations taken from their personal flash books as well as photos of their custom made tatt machines, this immense book is the literary (and far less expensive) equivalent to a hazy stag weekend in Copenhagen.
