    Book thread

    Based on the response in the "Who Are You?" thread, I decided to start a thread about books you're currently reading or wanting to read or have influenced you or make good paper weights/bludgeons. I hope I don't sound like an intellectual snob, but one of the first things I look for when I'm invited into someone's house is a bookshelf. I don't judge anyone on their reading choices; instead, I see a bookshelf as window into a person's interests and passions, whether it's Plato, Patricia Cornwell, or Clymer's repair manuals. On my shelf I have Wolfe, Kesey, Thompson, the Bhagavad Gita, Chicano literature, true crime paper backs, travel books, and art/reference books. Currently, I'm reading "The Hero with a 1000 Faces" by Joseph Campbell. I started my Joseph Campbell journey via a conversation with AP Shrewsbury while I was getting tattooed (very interesting and nice guy BTW) about symbolism and myth. I went through "The Power of Myth" pretty quickly; it's written in an interview format between Bill Moyers and Campbell. "The Hero..." on the other hand, is dense and very academic. I was kind of turned off in the intro, but then it started to get interesting with Campbell's mythological anecdotes connecting cultural ideas about spirituality and purpose. Next up is Jodorowsky's "The Way of the Tarot", which I'm reading as a companion to the Telos Tarot I got through Shrewsbury. I'll give a run down when I finally get through "The Hero...":rolleyes:
  6. Just got these last week brand new condition, signed by grime. 175 shipped. Low on cash atm.
  7. If anyone has any tattoo related books they don't use or look at anymore, I'm looking to further my collection. Let me know what you got!
  8. i just started reading this the other night. in the introduction, the author talks about cases of tattoo removal in the late 1800s and early 1900s. i had no clue that this was possible. i have a question for you tattooer that may know the answer-how was this done? i'm assuming the that the tattoo had to be cut or scrapped off, but who the hell knows.
  9. It's been hard to miss the announcements about this all over instagram recently, who is excited for it? I'm really looking forward to it and am really hopeful that this is a proper non-professional equivalent to Tattoo Artist Magazine and while it's maybe unrealistic to expect the depth of that magazine (when I was last getting tattooed I looked at the issue featuring State of Grace, and they had something like a 50 page feature on that shop, and while I would personally love to be able to have access to things like that I think it would be alienating to the vast majority of people who are interested enough in tattoos to read a magazine about them) I hope it offers real substance for people serious about tattoos, and can help educate people about good tattoos.
  10. so i have "1,000 Tattoos" and "Vintage Tattoos: the book of old-school skin art" both have been great. can anyone point me toward some other books? not really interested in traditional japanese stuff, however relevant. just American for me D
  11. I've only seen one issue (feat Fillip Leu), so I'm wondering if this was a one-off test run from the Tattoo Artist Magazine people. The reason I ask is because, as non-tattooer, you can't purchase TAM (I guess because of the shop talk, or whatever.) but I just want to read interviews with tattooers I like. It's the reason I don't buy other magazines featuring Johnny Nu Skool Colorbomb Portrait guy and various X-game contestants with script rib tattoos. Maybe having a place for edited versions of articles on the TAM blog or site for non-tattooers?
  12. Hi, Does anybody know if the new Milton Zeis book, Tattooing as you like it will be made available in the UK? I've looked in to ordering it but the cost of the book and the shipping itself works out at £106 or $168. I know it's worth paying the cost rather than buying a couple of books that aren't that much good but to me it's still a lot of money to part with! So I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas before I spend a fortune on shipping to find that it's available in the UK in a few months time!
  13. Hello, My partner Kayla and I are teaming up to put together a Milton Zeis book. Its going to be a biography with examples of his machines, catalogs, books, commercial flash ect. We are in the process of researching and gathering source material right now and I was just curious if anyone had info or material they would like to contribute. Our goal with this book is to preserve his legacy for those that have come after him. We also want to have an accurate resource for people interested in his life and work and provide solid reference material for tattooers/collectors. Please contact me if you have any info regarding Zeis that you like to contribute. Thanks!
  14. i've read these two books and highly recommend them: Can anyone recommend me any cool books to read?
  15. what's everyone's opinion on this? i know there are some artists out there that feel that if one artist bases their design off of another artist's work, that is stealing. however, almost every artists incorporates the use of designs that have been used for many, many years. what's the difference to you (if there is one)? since i'm not an artist, only a client, i'm just curious to hear what everyone thinks.
  16. im shaun im 18 and im a tattoo apprentice form ireland i was just wondering if someone could hook me up with somewhere to buy some great resource books any style at all thank you.
  17. -Eddie Poferl flash book $20+ shipping (guessing $5 flat rate US; no idea on international) -Tom Berg flash book from the Tattoo Archives $30+ shipping -Gomeniko "Japanese Ghosts" book $40+ shipping (link with pics Gomineko - Ghost Stories Books) -Chinese Hero book from Chinatown SF-great line art of gods and heroes 56pgs $30+shipping -Chinese Dragon/Phoenix book from Chinatown SF-line art and layouts for dragons/phoenixes 100pgs $35+shipping
  18. Just preordered it, it's by horitaka and seems like its got some cool stuff in it. Anyone had a sneak peek of it? Or anyone planning on getting it
  19. More amazing history found at some garage type sale on EBay! Damn good thing people aren't tossing out literature as this find of 1910 shows a good catalog of info, from lining and shading machines to hand poke from the Prof. H.W. Rebec of Cedar Rapids Iowa. This seller on Ebay has 4 different catalogs, one from "Bucky & Walters" , Bucky taught Charley Barrs to tattoo and Charley was of age when Custer lost on the battlefield in 1876. Just found it amazing that such a catalog would turn up with a such equipment when to this date we have never seen a catalog of/from Charlie Wagner. If you stroll through their literature you can read mixing formula, single needle liners and flat shaders of #12 pins, switchboards and rheostat's back in 1910 and the machines are not the "doorbell" but the dual coil like we still use. Kinda makes a person wonder what direction supplies came from and the suppliers that suppliers went through to then stamp their name on something. Like most discoveries it can often lend to more questions than answers. Thought this worthy to post as the literature from the seller was posted last night and anybody can do a search on the items from the same seller and collect the info from the pic's or maybe want to bid but the info is awesome to some of us who have such interest on the historical side of tattooing. Whoever gets these items should forward the info to the Tattoo Archives if they don't have it already The link is : 1910's antique tattoo artists supplies machines PRICE LIST CATALOG H. W. REBEC | eBay Hope the photo's uploaded well, just 4 but anybody careing to brouse the auctions while they are up there should take the time to have a look. Shareing is Careing, ha!
  20. just to let those that don't already know, Volume II is now available through the website. get yours Amund Dietzel
  21. I am a tattooer visiting San Fransisco September2-7. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions of bookstores or any other sites tattoo and art related that i should visit. Of course the tattoo museum, MOMA, and the arboretum are on my list. I know there's gotta be some bookstores in China Town and Little Tokyo that have some great reference books. I am particularly interested in aquiring Japanese mythology and art instructional books. I was also curious of the etiquette about dropping in on some of the better shops in town. Any help would be appreciated.
  22. Hi, This is my first post on these boards although I've been reading them for a long time. I'm a research chemist but have a number of tattoos (mostly from Stewart Robson) and I'm interested in the history of tattooing around the world. I've read around 20 different books (mostly available in your average book store) and was wondering if anyone on this forum could point me in the direction of either some intresting books on tattoo history or a shop which might stock more books on the subject than the average book shop. I live in Manchester in the UK but I'm willing to travel to find more information. I'm not doing this for any other purpose than to expand my own knowledge on the area. I'm not looking for image reference books (I don't have the want to become a tattooer), just books containing any form of information about the history of tattooing world wide. I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes or being disrespectful by asking. If I have been I apologise unreservedly. Thanks :)
  23. Tattoo Life Gallery Fresh ideas for your tattoos They are charging for a gallery...did they even get artist permission...and if not...oh lord. all they did is set up a database to make it easier to access designs, artists, and style in a search engine style site. Probably took them a week to put together, WTF.
  24. I was digging in some older threads and this topic has been mentioned before, but I thought I would restart it with the hope of a little more success. This is not just for the tattoo artist out there. This is to anybody that is looking for ideas for their next tattoo and those that are always looking for inspiration for their own art. I have seen everything from the expensive fine art books to children's coloring books in the library of artist. I would like to know what everybody here has and uses as some of their favorites. If it's books, magazines, a specific website, or whatever gets those creative juices flowing.
  25. I got my first tattoo a while ago, and fell in love with the medium and the art of the trade. Since then I've been engrossing myself with as much information about tattoos I can find. I was hoping you guys could give me some recommendations for books that have information about the history of the art and some of the key artists in the past. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance, -Maxx
