Tattoos Of The Floating World

Author(s): Kitamura Takahiro & Katie M


This unique book by tattoo artist Takahiro Kitamura (Horitaka, an apprentice of Horiyoshi III) discusses the art of the Japanese tattoo in the context of Ukiyo-e, concentrating on the parallel histories of the woodblock print and the tattoo. Through high quality illustrations it shows that the Japanese tattoo is highly reliant on and linked to the woodblock print, and that it deserves a position among the other art forms. It comes with special focus on tattoo artist Horiyoshi III and an essay by Don Ed Hardy.
