Renowned English tattoo artist Alex Binnie puts down his machine and takes up the gouge for this series of portraits of his friends and colleagues from the tattoo world. Including such famous names as Filip Leu, Freddy Corbin, Jondix and Thomas Hooper, alongside co-workers and clients from his London shop, Into You, this series of intimate portraits expands his artistic boundaries.
Influenced by the great tattoo and printmaking traditions of the past, Alex takes his skill and vision in an entirely new direction, totalling 36 prints and with an introduction and short description of each subject, we see the classic form of printmaking in a contemporary context.
This volume is available in a limited edition of 1,000 numbered copies, making it a real collectors’ item.
