Practice makes perfect and a revolutionary new training tactic for tattoo artists known as 'The Skin Book' knows just that. Comprised of pages of artificial skin, the Skin Book will give aspiring tattoo artists the opportunity to practice their craft without the permanent risks associated with practicing on friends or first-time clients.

In addition to the skin-like texture, the book also features body parts on its pages, a distinguished level of practice which is not usually possible with traditional training tactics using animals, fruits and other surfaces.

Though the Skin Book is not yet available for mainstream sale, the collaboration between Tattoo Art Magazine and design agency Lew/Lara is a part of a larger movement towards the acceptance of body art in mainstream culture -- as the initiative is sure to minimize cases of "tattoo regret" across the globe.
