While derping around online between several video game forums, I tabbed over to Twitter to see what was good, and saw I had a mention from @DangerslyDolly – which is always exciting because she a fantastic woman, high-level Demon Hunter and a photography wizard. I’ve worked with her twice now, and was always extremely satisfied with my pictures, but more so, always really happy with experience. She is funny, professional and real. I love her attitude. ANYWAYS – enough gushing. She took some photos of me a while ago that landed me on the cover of a tattoo magazine, which has always been on my “bucket list”, and I found out via twitter that another image she took of me landed me an embarrassingly large page in a tattoo book! So, you can totally have me on your coffee table if you wanted. The book is called “Tattoo Art by Russ Thorne” and you can by it on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble. A Twitter friend from Ireland said he saw it in a book store over there as well, so just keep an eye out! If you come across it, please take a picture of my page ( and you! ) and tweet it to me! Here is the cover of the book and my page ( with some other fancy ladies! ) so check it out!
“Tattoo Art is a stunning survey of some of the most amazing tattoo work being done today. Over 140 photographs full of character, colour and attitude showcase the many styles and images with which people are marking their bodies, while a fascinating discussion of tattooing as cultural phenomenon and art form, as well as what some tattoos mean and what to think about before getting one yourself, runs alongside. In addition, throughout the book you will find feature spreads dedicated to some of the most talented and innovative tattoo artists working around the world, with photographs showing the progression of pieces from design or outline to finished tattoo. Whether you are a tattoo fiend, thinking about braving the needle or simply appreciate eye-boggling artwork, look on in awe.”
