a Book On tattoos and their emotional connections

Why tattoos? This Art has been used for centuries to communicate not only information but our ideas, expressions and interpretations of ourselves and the world. Many theorists have interpreted our ability to create art as one of the earliest expressions of human consciousness that sets us apart from any other species.

In this book we explore how a person’s tattoo often reflect concepts of ancient theories of traditional Chinese medicine. As artist expression can be as varied as the canvases available, the one that may be the most revealing of human consciousness is the one that is placed on ourselves in the form of tattoos.
