This week the gallery is dedicated to Dragons Tattoo Flash: one image which never ceases to amaze.
Although it is a staple of tattoo, interpreted in all the various styles, it always appears in a different guise, playing on its sinuous shapes and the magnificent imagery it takes from various traditions. The most commonly encountered is the Oriental dragon which finds its greatest expression in Japanese tattoo… Weaving its magic with the power of its imagery, no matter how unreal it may be.
The dragon is the king of the important volume “Ryuki – Mysterious Dragons“, which we are proud to present to tattoo fans all over the world. The book contains 250 original pieces of art created by Horiyoshi III, master of tattoo art who actually brought the Irezumi tattoo tradition to the Western world. Ryuki Mysterious Dragons is the title of the book, published in the series The Great Books on The Art of Tattooing.
This column is dedicated to tattoo flash: there will be loads of new proposals every week, in colour and black and white which we select for you from material sent to the staff. A melting pot on a specific theme from which to pick the subjects you’ve always dreamed of having tattooed.
