This is the magnum opus by one of the world’s best known tattoo artists, Henk Schiffmacher, also known as Hanky Panky. Following the massive success of the Dutch edition in the fall of 2008, we now set out to publish the English edition this fall.
The Tattoo Encyclopedia is a big, full-colour illustrated history of tattooing, filled with unique pictures of tattoos, artifacts and drawings that Schiffmacher has collected during his travels. These illustrations are accompanied by anecdotes and information on key historical events and figures in tattooing. This phenomenal from A to Z-encyclopedia will ensure that tattooing is finally accepted as a serious art form.
