Описание: Into the Skin is the first complete comprehensive directory to the art of tattooing. This is the first book to delve wholly into the world of tattoo; from the origins and history of tattooing to modern practices, and equipment. This book from Superior Tattoo and Wolfgang Publications starts with a history of tattooing, then moves into a discussion of the tattoo machine and power supply; including the different types, set up how-to, and trouble shooting.
Next comes the basics of getting started and FAQs. Before doing any tattoo, the artist needs to consider skin preparation, and how to set the correct needle depth. The needle itself is described in detail; including different styles and how to choose the best needle for a particular style of tattoo. Sterilization is a crucial part of the tattooing process. Into the Skin describes general medical and sterilization requirements for any tattoo shop, as well as a list of products and the best use of each one. One complete chapter is devoted to the fine art of lining and shading, how to adjust the machine and pick the best needle for the job. Another chapter explains the application and use of color; how to pick the best colors and color combinations.
There are more tattoo styles now than ever before, and each - from tribal to traditional - is described in both words and photos. Tattoo cover-ups, and repairs to old tattoos is another "style" covered in detail. No matter the style of tattoo, there is aftercare to consider, a necessary final step that will ensure the tattooed area heals well.
Superior Tattoo, one of the world's largest suppliers of tattoo equipment, is the ideal author for this book, especially the chapter on the business of tattooing. This section includes all the steps necessary to build a portfolio, apply for an apprenticeship, and set up your own tattoo shop.
It's more than simple instruction, and much more than an encyclopedia entry. Into the Skin is a culmination of decades of real world tattoo experience, and thousands of hours of research. It's a history book, training guide, and tattoo owners manual all in one.
