Fashion

The popularity of tattoos has exploded in recent years, with many celebrities such as David Beckham, Cheryl and Jemma Lucy turning inkings into the ultimate fashion statement.

With Tattoo Expos popping up across the globe sporting outstanding pieces of artwork across your body has never been hotter.

The book TTT: Tattoo showcases some of the world’s most talented artists from the likes of Ed Hardy to Kenji Alucky.

A collaboration between journalist Nicholas Schonberger and TTTism magazine, the inking bible is packed full of some of the most inspirational designs from around the world. 

The book also takes a look back at how connections between modern culture and ancient traditions have developed different tattoo styles. 

Filled with some stunning imagery, models strip naked and proudly flaunt the incredible artwork embellished across their bodies.

The women show off geometric black and white designs, traditional Japanese body art and modern offerings. 

Some have braved the pain to get all-over body patterns, while others have opted for smaller inkings.

One of the raciest designs in the book is by French artist Silly Jane, who chisel two topless Japanese ladies playing pat-a-cake across the calf of a tattoo enthusiasts legs.

Silly sees herself as a lover of the Japanese ero-guro art moment or erotic and grotesque as it is better described. 

Another tattoo queen represented in the book is Lewisink, a 27-year-old former graphic designer, who is best known for her geometric designs. 

She started out doing a few tattoos for friends and has developed into a major artist.

Japanese designs have become very popular, from traditional tiger creations by British tattooist Stewart Robson to more simple Asian styles like the cascading rose by Jinpil Yuu.

After founding the 1770 tattoo shop in Brighton in 2005, Jason Mosser’s has developed plenty of cheeky designs over the years.

Inspiration for the artist’s tattoos can come from anywhere, Ferderico Rabble’s skelton tattoo resembles Renaissance paintings, while Alvaro Flores takes snippets of architectural patterns.

All these designs and more can be found in TTT: Tattoo by Nick Schonberger and TTTism. It is out on September, 24 2018. Published by Laurence King. Find out more at tttbook.new
