Interesting articles about a book called ‘1000 Tattoos’ by Henk Schiffmacher and Burkhard Riemschneider. Originally published 25 years ago, it’s been in print ever since.
My tattoo artist has his own, very dog-eared copy of this book and I managed to secure a copy for myself back in 2008 during my stay in Oslo, Norway. My edition is abridged and in German but it’s still interesting and a nice souvenir!

It’s a good starter for everyone interested in tattoos and their fascinating history through time and space! 🙂
