Greetings from Tattoo Education!
We are excited to announce the latest edition to our catalog, The Force In The Flesh. For the past 30 years, fans of the Star Wars films have been going to great lengths to express their passion for the Saga. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than with the large group of people who have chosen to mark themselves for life with the captivating imagery found throughout that galaxy far, far away. Written by Shane Turgeon, creator of www.tattoosandtoys.com, and with an introduction by Guy Aitchison, The Force in the Flesh is the first publication to delve into the world of Star Wars tattoos and elegantly showcase the finest Star Wars body art the world has to offer.
The Force in the Flesh is a 9" x 11" embossed hardcover, full-color, coffee table book spanning 208 pages and is packed with over 400 photos tastefully telling the individual stories of 45 different Star Wars tattoo collectors and artists from the world over. Profiled artists from the tattoo industry include Guy Aitchison, Hannah Aitchison, Craig Driscoll, Luis Villagomez, Matt Ellis and many more with additional artwork collected from the likes of Steve Moore, Troy Denning, Chris Garver, Patrick Cornolo, Jason Rhodes, Mark Merchant, Jason Leisge and a host of others. Simply put, this book is a must-have for all those who appreciate Star Wars and/or great tattoo art. We have it now at our online store for $55.00. There are limited numbers of the book available, and we expect it to be sold out before the end of the year, so now is your chance to pick up a copy of this unique collector's item.
In addition, Guy has posted a new entry into the Tattoo Education blog. This is the most detailed technical blog he's written so far, delving into the design requirements of large coverup projects. If you are a tattooist interested in coverups of a collector wanting to know more about the possibilities in getting your unwanted work transformed, this blog is worth checking out.
Thanks, and we'll be in touch soon!
