BLACK TATTOO ART MARISA KAKOULAS PDF

Blackwork tattooing has been a staple of Indigenous tattoo cultures for over 7, years. Whether hand-tapped, hand-poked, skin-cut, or skin-stitched, this style of tattooing was originally produced with needles and natural black and sometimes red pigments for a variety of ritual, personal, and social reasons. Over the millennia, Blackwork has evolved to become a contemporary art form inspired by ancient Tribal and more modern Neotribal roots. Kakoulas investigates these ancient and emerging worlds of ink through introductory texts on Ornamental and Neotribal art work, the painstaking patterning and stippling of Dotwork designs, the abstract renderings of the Modern Art Brut Movement, and Tribal tattoo revivals occurring around the world. Over photographs illuminate this hearty tome and they survey in dramatic detail each of the aforementioned genres of tattooing.

I am very happy to see the Revivals sections receive equal footing with the rest of the book. After all, Tribal peoples invented tattooing and we would not have books like this or a vibrant tattoo culture if it were not for Indigenous achievements in the medium of Blackwork. I am also pleased to see some of my friends covered in these sections, artists that I have featured in magazine articles and also my website.

The takeaway from this book is as direct as the art itself. And the creative scope is unlimited: gorgeous traditional Tribals, elaborated patterns and figurative designs, to the point of completely free and unconventionally tattooed layouts.
