About the Author

Inkstinct is the first project that offers tattoo enthusiasts a comprehensive database of the best contemporary tattoo designs from the world’s best artists, as well as useful information on tattoo care, favorite studios, curiosities, and trends. Starting with a large collection of studios in 2014, they developed an algorithm to create the only app that represents the most important worldwide collection of tattoo studios, images, and works. In just one year they created a database with more than 380,000 studios, each of which are synced directly with Facebook. In 2016 they allowed single artists to connect within their Instagram page and introduced the very first tattoo social network where users could upload their tattoos, find the best artist or studio in every city in the world, and experience tattoos as pure forms of art. Inkstinct’s main Instagram page now has more than 650,000 followers, including artists and fans from all over the globe.

This book is an amazing compendium of artists and their work

This book is an amazing compendium of artists and their work. I love how it includes the artists' social media handles and websites. This is a treat for the eyes--even my students were drooling over some of the tattoos--that will give readers an excuse to travel the world and get inked.

It is a great book full of ideas for you to take and …

If this book doesn't make you want to run out and get under the ink, you're not a tattoo person. The days of "skulls" and "mom" are out, and personal ink is in!

These tattoos are a tribute to fan culture, science, animals, etc. It is a great book full of ideas for you to take and give to your artist to help you create something just as original. The ink addict in me is already marking pages for my next visit!

May the ink be with you…

Tattoos have always fascinated me. I used to watch every episode of Miami Ink, amazed by their skills. I particularly liked Chris Garver’s and Kat Von D’ stunning portraits. I also follow few others on Facebook - their creations are always a pleasure to contemplate.

This album includes well renowned artists, some of which I knew, others new to me. They were chosen for their unique tattooing style and thinking-out-of-the-box works. They are part of Inkstinct, first project to create and offer a comprehensive database with more than 380,000 studios and individual artists, forming an extensive network.

The book presents a minibiography and portfolio of 25 featured artists, what inspired them and what’s their particular signature as well as a gallery with a few hundred tattoo artworks of the above-mentioned artists and others.

I particularly admired the geometric and abstract style of Emrah Ozhan (Turkey/USA), Adrian Bascur’s (Chile) watercolour technique, Balazs Bercsenyi’s (Hungary/USA) minimalist lines, intricate geometry and illusion pieces, David Cote’s (Canada) neo-traditional and psychedelic tattooing style, Mo Ganji’s (Iran/Germany) tattoos inked from a single line, Little Andy’s (UK) colored pieces resembling Andy Warhol’ style, Pissaro’s (Crimea) botanical tattoos, Eva Krdbk’s (Turkey) and Andrea Morales’s (Spain) microrealism, with cameo like tattoos.

Most of them are absolutely gorgeous.

Bottom line, even if you are a fan of tattoos or not, you’ll be enchanted by these creations. Great artwork!
