At the time, when we published the first volume in 2009, I had no idea that we would have such an incredible response. Within this hardcover are 448-pages containing over 600 images, in addition to text, featuring the works of over 75 artists from around the globe. The most important addition to Black Tattoo Art II is the greater roster of international artists: 75 top tattooists from Saint Petersburg to Sao Paolo, Austin to Aotearoa, Barcelona to Brooklyn and beyond. One of the greatest successes of the first volume of Black Tattoo Art was that it helped forge bonds among artists and collectors who find particular allure in blackwork tattooing.
While tattoo is considered to be painful, tattoo branding is an even more extreme form of art where a third degree burn is inflicted on to one's skin. Eight Arms of Inspiration: The Octopus Art Project features an extensive collection of octopus-related, mostly-tattoo, artwork from around the world. With a diverse array of mediums included, the octopus is interpreted in nearly 1,000 different ways by over 440 artists of many genres and disciplines. John did his first tattoo in 1999 however, he did not get serious about the craft until 2004.
I've been tattooing at Broken Art since 2011.Since I was a child I've had a fond fascination with tattoos.
I just thought that there wasn’t really any comprehensive books on works created only with black ink, such as neotribal, ornamental and abstract work, and so Edition Reuss and I made one.
They share their creativity, innovation, and spirit in presenting images of their tattoo and fine art work for this book.


From Sacred Geometry and Eastern Iconography to pop culture portraiture and folk art imagery, the tattoos presented in this chapter depict a large range of subject matter created from a small mode of articulation: dots. The goal of Black Tattoo Art II is to expand this community and further inspire those seeking to carry forth the beautiful and powerful traditions of the art form. It is a celebration of the cephalopod, a creature with eight-arms, three hearts, no bones, and blue blood. Featured in this extensive collection are paintings, drawings, tattoos, sculptures, sketches, photographs, graffiti art, digital art, jewelry, poetry, glasswork, cloth art, pottery, bronze work, cake art, and more. Once he committed himself to the tattoo world, he quickly rose up the ladder and pushed himself to be the best artist that he can be.
They were a symbol of freedom, adventure, mystery, and danger and in many ways still continue to be.
For me, when I want to really find inspiration, to spend time with a work of art, I want a book in my hands. There are also more hand poked and tapped tattoos represented, and an entirely new chapter has been added celebrating Nordic and Celtic-inspired art. In this chapter, readers will find Iban hand-tapped works of Borneo, Mentawai tattooing of Indonesia, Ta Moko of the Maori, Tatau of Samoa, magic-infused Thai tattoos, and Kalinga tattoo practices being revived in the Philippines. John opened Marvel Art in January of 2007 with the goal of giving his hometown something fresh and unique in a tattoo shop.
As I grew older I began to saturate myself in art from all time periods, cultures, genres, and places.


Artists and collectors from the book contacted each other, shared ideas, and had a few drinks. It was during this time I became aware of how important of a role art would play in my life. My interest in tattoos had begun to reignite when I got my first "real tattoo" at Broken Art from Jeremy Swan in early 2006 - I got a taste of what tattooing really could be. From that moment on,A I positively knew that I had to become a tattoo artist and that I had to work at Broken Art. He has an appreciation for all genres of art and strive to better himself in the many evolving styles of tattooing.
So after four years of getting tattooed by Swan, I started showing him my latest pieces of art - turning his critique into fuel for my paintings. I became a sponge for everything tattoo related and I was finally given some proving ground.
All I can say is that I've truly been blessed to have been inducted into such an amazing place with such a high level of artistry. Working side-by-side with the guys at Broken Art continues to push the limits of my tattoo career.
