why i love tatoos


…my personal fascination is related to their history, a subculture that has mutated to haute couture…

photographer and graphic designer ralf mitsch has just completed his personal tatoo photography project with a neat book

the images are accompanied by short stories and anecdotes from the portrayed individuals, who were all interviewed by henk van straten; the subjects have all been shot against a consistent skin tone background colour, creating a strong effect of focussing the attention on the tattoos rather than the differences in the people themselves

you can order a copy order online via mendo


and in what is most probably a case of ‘great minds think alike’ local photographer krijn van noordwijk has just completed a book on the very same subject too
