Tattoo Life November/December 2018 with the 2019 Calendar

“In circulation, in the future”: read an extract of the editorial by Miki Vialetto

Interviewing a variety of tattooists is important because it gives us the chance to reflect on present day tattooing, intended here as a sector first and foremost, before an art form.
