Modern-day passion, tangible tradition, and striking creativity: trace how tattooing continues to evolve in the follow up to Forever. From the fluidity of watercolor to the meticulous nature of dotwork to the stunning detail of realism, the various styles of tattooing allow creativity to flourish. And whether inked in a clandestine spot or showcased visibly, every piece has its story. In Ukraine and Turkey, tattoos are political statements. Today, celebrated artists travel the world, organizing appointments exclusively via social media. Tattooing can be a way of life. Following the success of Forever: The New Tattoo, this volume further tracks the scene’s inventiveness and originality as tattoos emerge from subculture obscurity. Just as the needle infuses the skin with ink, the artists profiled here infuse life into current tattoo culture. Forever Now explores their unique stories and iconic work whilst creating a comprehensive narrative of this dynamic and enduring scene.
