In these days of forced solitude, we have decided to keep you company and make available to you every week three illustrated plates by the best tattoo artists around who we have had the pleasure and the honour of collaborating with over the years.

What we are talking about here are the great Masters who have written tattoo history, with whom we have put together some of the best-loved and most prestigious volumes dedicated to this splendid art: collector’s items with the finest attention to detail – in some cases, sold out – which were sold in bookshops all over the world.

The free plates we give you come from the pages of the books in the series The Great Books on the Art of Tattooing. They are striking images, with a wealth of symbolism and meanings, historical references and allusions: ready for to be downloaded, printed, studied and admired by all. Ready to come into your houses or shops, creating an indissoluble bond with us and our community.

We trust that they can be an inspiration and spur you on to create, study, and travel in your imagination, spreading the true culture of tattoo.
