To best demonstrate each distinct visual work, we have concentrated on three main areas: individual design of tattoo icons and patterns as well as a full-page format to show visual impact over a large area, and finally, for project’s experimental purpose, there are also images to reveal how designer-artists play and have fun with their reproduced tattoo graphic in fake tattoo stickers on human and animal bodies. It is the attitude that is essential and influential towards the nowadays tattoo trend.
The last but not the least, to make this interesting project more playful and experimental, selected tattoo’s artwork has been produced as detachable tattoo stickers for trial at the bookend. It is amazing our readers can really experience the tattoo power and not any one of your purchased books would have the same collection. So, are you ready for this tattoo action?
