I've always preferred black-and-white tattoos over color, but I think this 'Color Tattoo Art: Cartoon. Comics. Pin-Up. Manga. New School' book will convince me otherwise.

Weighing in at 496 pages and featuring 46 world artists with a monumental 580 tattoo images, you'll go from a color tattoo newbie to body artwork professor after reading this beast of a book. 'Color Tattoo Art: Cartoon. Comics. Pin-Up. Manga. New School' also makes a point to feature artwork that isn't easily classifiable under the traditional tattoo categorizations of Americana, tribal and Japanese, reflecting the modern shift in a universal hybridization of all different tattoo styles.

This great tome of modern tattoo knowledge is perfect of fans and beginners alike. Who knows, maybe one of these days I'll actually settle on a tattoo design I like and finally get it inked.
