An entertaining, colorful book on tattoos and those who love them. Herbert Hoffmann (1919-2010) introduces his art with an autobiography revealing and narrating his early passion for tattooing, and development of the art form. Includes a colorful overview of the various designs of tattoos which he has created. From sailors and boats to inscriptions and hearts celebrating loved ones, or elements emblematic of countries around the world, these tattoos are colorful and diverse, praising adventure and discovery as well as the perpetuity of the things we truly love.

Filled with color plates showing flash / tattoo designs. Preface by the artist is in German translated into English.
