There has been many publications on tattooing history, but none of which have documented the rich and extensive history of this industry in Australia. For a country so geographically isolated, Australia has maintained a tattoo culture uniquely tough, resourceful and creative. John Entwistle was one of a small but dedicated crew of tattooists who paved the way through four decades to help make tattooing in this country what it is today. John pursued this career regardless of mainstream acceptance and continued to innovate and succeed on his own terms. John is many things - a tattooist, archivist, manufacturer, painter, a gentleman and an inspiration to the generations of tattooists who have come after him. This book contains John's tattoo designs, stories and archival information, most of which have never been seen before in a modern day publication.
