It's been a long time since tattoos were considered exclusively underground. All it takes is one look at the arms of your local barista, bartender or co-worker to see that ink is everywhere these days. Gestalten's coffee table book Forever: The New Tattoo by R. Klanten and F. Schulze charts the evolution of forever ink from sub-culture to mainstream through fresh ideas, tensions, shifts, and innovations across a broad range of styles and inspirations. With works from the likes of Peter Aurisch, Mark Cross, Rafel Delalande, Lionel Fahy, Fergadelic, Alix Lambert and Jon John among others--along with a preface by tattooed art historian Matt Lodder that puts current developments in tattooing into historical context--Forever breaks the mold of standard tattoo books and their typical displays of flesh.
