Reviews - What do customers think about 1000 Tattoos (Taschen 25)?

Thick as a Brick and Packed  May 12, 2005
This book is everywhere, in every kind of store imagineable, and it's always well-thumbed. That's because it's irresistible. Hanky Panky has drawn from his enormous photo collection and given us 1000 tattoos -- of all types, including some historical shots. One of the most bizarre tattoos that I have ever seen is in this book (the topless woman who has a tattoo on her upper chest and collar bone of a necklace of dangling male members -- each male member tattooed with a different theme). In the past, this book has been out of print, so get it while you can.
agreablement surprise  Aug 4, 2004
Je suis tres contente, l'expedition est un peu lente (1 mois) mais le livre est arrivé en bonne etat. Si j'ai a commander a nouveau aupres de powelle et je le ferai sans crainte. Merci
Very cool book, but some shortcomings...  Feb 20, 2004
I really enjoy this book and never get tired of perusing it, but it is very heavy on old school designs with very little modern stuff to chew on. I love the old tattoo photos from the early 20th century, and a lot of the black and white shots of oldies like Les Skuse at work. A great photographic history, indeed.

Again, the only real shortcoming is the lack of modern designs, but it makes up for it with all of the great old school photos. A great resource to have as a compliment to other books and manuals.

Historically, this is very interesting, but. . .  Jun 5, 2003
This book lacks a lot. First, it does not address many of the pre-eminent tattooists of the recent past and present. For example, there is no Guy Aitchison, no Aaron Cain, no Dan Hazelton, etc. People like this have been essential to the recent developments of the tattoo. Second, as one of the reviewers below notes, there is not much in the way of written history here. That is both good and bad since it is nice to have all these pictures, but I found my self wanting explanations and background. Third, many of the photos in this book are downright unpleasant in the aesthetic sense. In other words, they depict awful tattoos on people that I don't really want to see naked. I know this is part of the history, but I don't really need to see a close up some guy's private parts tattooed with a devil head. I'm not a prude, but I certainly prefer the more stylish pictures that many of the tattoo magazines offer (especially International Tattoo Art).
Not a bad resource, but not everything I wanted...  Jul 1, 2002
First of all, this book DOES give a bit of the fascinating background of tattooing through the ages. It also DOES give plenty of photographs (~90-95% of the book).

However, it does not give much in the way of explanation of where the modern styles developed. It also spends the majority of its pages on "Old School" flash, opting to only show modern tattoos in the last 5-10% of the book. Also, MANY of the photographs are in black and white, so you can't get a good feel for the use of color on a lot of them.

All in all, this is a good resource. It shows a lot of tattoos, but information-wise, it's a little thin.
