Item description for The World of Tattoo: An Illustrated History by Maarten Hesselt Van Dinter...

In this book the tattoos of geographical regions and their inspiration are discussed at length in separate chapters, accompanied by many rare and previously unpublished illustrations sourced from libraries and museums across the globe. During the eight years it took Maarten Hesselt van Dinter to compile this book, he travelled extensively, visiting impressive archives and collections, and some of the tribes described here. By combining empirical history, cultural analysis, and a highly readable style, the World of Tattoo is a vital contribution to the ongoing efforts to write a meaningful history of tattooing.

Bad  Sep 11, 2007
Never Received Item. Wrote comment back to this site upon request of feed back. Have not received follow up or refund. Re-Ordered with different subsidiary and hope for better results.
 
*Intelligent and Tattooed? Buy this one. *  Jan 5, 2006
This is an amazing collection of images and information on tattoos around the world. This book is completely worth it to not only the naive belly button pierced,lower back tattooed 18 yr. old American female but also to the full body suited,societally rejected,modification community member.It is SUCH a great resource you'll want to lend it to everyone you know with an interest in the art. Buy it,you seriously will not regret it.
 
Focuses on world tattoo culture and traditions  Nov 5, 2005
Tattoos are an ever-increasing part of modern life and more tattoo books are being published as a result: but none quite so extensive or detailed as The World Of Tattoo: An Illustrated History, which focuses on world tattoo culture and traditions. With sections divided by area of the world and packed with pages of color photos, it's easy to focus study on one region - and with World Of Tattoo's focus on history and cultural insights, there's much more going on than just a photo display alone. Highly recommended not just for modern audiences interested in tattoo, but for any college-level collection strong in cultural references.
