The Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files book is filled with over 180 vintage photographs that depict the intricate permanent body art of these convicts. What makes the work especially interesting is that many of the tattoos had coded meanings, which are revealed within the pages of this book.

The hidden language of the criminal world as depicted in the Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files book was documented by Arkady Bronnikov, Russia’s leading expert on tattoo iconography and senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs. Although put together by FUEL Design & Publishing, the collection showcased in the book is Bronnikov's. The book is currently on Kickstarter seeking a goal of £8,500 for funding.
