Outrageous! Exquisitely executed filth...
A gonzo view of tats through the ages: mostly British, frequently profane, replete with extravagantly inked caricatures.
The vibrant, full-color palette and drawing style frequently invoke old-school flesh art, and the author's cartoonist background shines in the scathing caricatures of Western history's most beloved and reviled figures. This picture book for grownups will please those who appreciate a heavy dose of mocking sarcasm with their social and political commentary.
It's an absurd, silly, slightly profane trip that fuses highbrow and lowbrow humor with Monty Python-esque glee.
No tattoo parlour should be without a copy - it's just the thing to take your mind off the pain.
