Graffiti Tattoo Vol. 2 is an impressive and well-researched reference work that documents the transition graffiti artists are increasingly making into the tattoo world. With their eye for color and mastery of lettering and wild styles, these spray paint virtuosos are changing the face of the tattoo business worldwide. They use a language filled with graffiti style burners and characters that go far beyond the standard tribal designs and sailor styles. While the first book allowed a rare glimpse into this movement, this much larger successor provides a full-blown compendium of this fantastic art on the most difficult canvas of all: skin.
