World wide in its coverage, this suvey and analysis of the 10000 year old art of tatooing up to present day is unique in detail of both text and illustrations. 200 monochrome pictures and 16 plates in full colr complement the liveley and authoritative text. Over the fiftenn chapters these two expert authros cover every aspect of tattooing. They examine its continuance into modern times, the practitioners of the art and the ubiquitious 'canvases', male and female, illustrous and humble, that even now are embellished with the tatooist profusion of designs.
