Vintage Tattoos: a sourcebook for old-school designs and tattoo artists

Lavishly presented and illustrated, "Vintage Tattoos" explores the bold, colourful and enduringly popular designs that were perfected across two World Wars, explains their history, symbolism and social significance, and delves into the colourful lives of the era's most famous practitioners. The book is arranged thematically, beginning with the maritime emblems and circus displays that kick started the golden age of vintage design. Interspersed throughout the pages are five stand-alone spreads profiling some of the most influential and fascinating tattooists of the period, and authoritative Q&A interviews with old-school tattooists.

If you aren't sure about something or simply want to ask a question about an item before purchasing don't hesitate to get in touch. Whether it's to clarify sizing or request more info on a product we are always here to help!

*Sizing - garments are always measured laid flat and doubled, e.g. armpit to armpit is 17" = 34" chest

*Colour - we do our best to capture the true colour of a garment in the photos but if you are not sure then let us know and we'll be happy to send more photos

*Wear & Tear - our item descriptions are quite detailed to ensure you are given as much information as possible about each item's condition. If we state the condition as 'new' or 'never worn' then expect no wear and tear. If a garment is listed as 'excellent' then there are no faults and the item has normal wear for a vintage or used item. 'Very good' is an indication that the garment is wearable but there may be minor or insignificant flaws that are not noticeable or can be fixed and these are always stated in the description. We do not stock items that are of a poorer condition than the above.

*Product Care - if there is a care label on the item we will state the directions indicated. If the item does not have a care label we will state our product care advice based on the fabric/material.
