This beautifully printed volume contains photographs, paintings and essays chronicling a six-year living journal. Memoir:The Tattooed Portraits Series includes paintings of Don Ed Hardy, Bob Roberts, Grime, Paul Booth, Marcus Pacheco, Kim Saigh, Jack Rudy, Thomas Woodruff, Aaron Cain, Mike Giant, Adrian Lee, Margaret Cho, and many more. The series documents many facets of the tattooing world, including the tattooing process and experience. The paintings range from traditional portraits to colorful, expressionistic abstractions and include 110 full color paintings and 30 color photographs. Forward by Margaret Cho with introductions by Marisa Kakoulas, C.W. Eldridge, and Kim Saigh.
