Obviously, I love tattoos. I mean, come on—I write for tattoo.com, after all. Tattoos dominate my life. In addition to my own work writing about tattoos, researching tattoos, and interviewing amazing tattoo artists from all over the world, my other half is a professional tattoo artist. Needless to say, our house is a bit tattoo-dedicated.
Given that I’m an author/journalist/blogger/publisher/editor (jack of all trades in the literary industry), books tend to be the other obsession in my household. I’m constantly on the lookout for must-have books to adorn my bookshelves, countertops, and coffee tables with. Given that tattooing is such a crucial part of my life, it should come as no surprise to you that I’m all-too-familiar with books regarding the subject matter.
For those of you who are getting involved in tattoo collecting or perhaps for those of you who are already avid collectors but are looking to expand your collection to off-skin, or even for those of you who are just interested in art, history, and culture—tattoo books are a must-have. If you are interested in grabbing a few for your shelves but don’t know where to start, don’t worry. I’ve made a list of the best tattoo books available on the internet!
