    This book features over 180 photographs and accompanying texts of Russian criminal tattoos from the Arkady Bronnikov collection. From the mid-1960s to the late- 1980s Bronnikov worked as a senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs, part of his duties involved visiting correctional institutions of the Ural and Siberia regions. It was here that he interviewed, gathered information and took photographs of convicts and their tattoos, building one of the most comprehensive archives of this phenomenon. He regularly helped to solve criminal cases across Russia by using his collection of tattoos to identify culprits and corpses. The Bronnikov collection was made exclusively for police use, to further the understanding of the language of these tattoos and to act as an aid in the identification and apprehension of criminals in the field. Unimpeded by artistry, these vernacular photographs present a guileless representation of criminal society. Every image discloses evidence of an inmate’s character: aggressive, vulnerable, melancholic, conceited. Their bodies display an unofficial history, told not just through tattoos, but also in scars and missing digits. Closer inspection only confirms our inability to comprehend the unimaginable lives of this previously unacknowledged caste.

    This book explores the artistic nature of tattooing and celebrates its living, creative, changing essence. Alongside the omniscience of tattoing throughout the world for thousands of years, presented through rare artifacts, the book pays tribute to the pioneers of the modern era, those responsible for its great transformation into the mainstream. Tattooing has become one of the most dynamic artistic currents of our era and is ever-evolving, despite the great revolutions the art has undergone. This book looks to its foremost representatives, the tattoo artists themselves, the guardians of the temple. With this in mind, two types of contemporary workshop creations have been produced. The first one presents thirteen silicone models, thirteen ‘extracts’ of the body, prints modelled from actual people, used by tattoo artists in the exercise of their art, machine worked or using traditional tools, depending on their daily practice. In search of a mise en abyme, blank canvases were offered to other artists, in the classic application known as ‘body suit’. The artists featuring in the book are world recognized. All active continents are represented: Europe, America, Asia and Oceania. All practitioners are respected by their peers for their contribution to the art. Finally there is a series of photos presenting the two most recent currents in modern tattooing, a locker room of aesthetic graphics that firmly root tattooing in the third millennium.
  • Presentation: Teíkitevaámanihií Robert Huukena, known as Teíki is a Tuhuka Patutiki (Marquesan tattooer). He is a member of a large family of artists from the island of Nuku-Hiva. His love for his ancestors and his passion for Tiki (image) art, in particular Patutiki, encouraged him to carry out more thorough research, by redrawing and classifying each Marquesan tattoo symbol with the aim of better revealing their significations and thus making their understanding accessible to everyone. For this work, Teíki wishes to pay tribute to his native land, Te Henua Enana (the Marquesas Islands) and his ancestors, the Tupuna. Presentatie: Teíkitevaámanihií Robert Huukena, bekend als Teíki is een Tuhuka Patutiki (Marquesan tattooer). Hij is lid van een grote familie van kunstenaars van het eiland Nuku Hiva. Zijn liefde voor zijn voorouders en zijn passie voor Tiki (afbeelding) kunst, in het bijzonder Patutiki, moedigde hem aan tot het uitvoeren van een meer gedegen onderzoek, door hertekenen en classificeren van elk Marquesan tattoo symbool met als doel het beter onthullen van hun betekenissen en waardoor hun begrip voor iedereen toegankelijk wordt. Via dit werk, wil Teíki hulde brengen aan zijn geboorteland, Te Henua Enana (de Marquesas-eilanden) en zijn voorouders, de Tupuna.

    Nieuw boek Manami Okazaki Er is een nieuw 256 pagina's tellend boek op de markt van de Japanse tattoo journaliste Manami Okazaki: Wabori. Japanese Traditional Tattoo. Eerder bracht ze het fraaie Tattoo in Japan uit. Voor haar nieuwe publicatie over traditionele Japanse tattoos heeft ze gedurende 8 jaar 15 van de beste Japanse meesters geïnterviewd; ze heeft hun werk laten fotograferen door de beste fotografen uit de tattoo wereld. Ook heeft ze archiefmateriaal van de meesters zelf kunnen gebruiken. De foto's laten hun werk zien over een periode van 40 jaar. Okazaki heeft ook interviews gedaan met woodblock kunstenaar Motoharu Asaka en met Shoko Tendo, de dochter van een yakuza boss. Ze wil namelijk ook het tatoeëren in Japan vanuit het perspectief van de klant benaderen. "Dit is het beste boek dat ik over Japanse tattoos heb geschreven," zegt Manami. "Het is een grote verbetering ten opzichte van mijn eerste boek Tattoo in Japan. De interviews geven veel inzicht in onder andere de verborgen aspecten van het Japanse tatoeëren. De meeste meesters zijn 60 tot 80 jaar oud. Hun verhalen lezen als een film, ze hebben me veel mooie anekdotes verteld. En ze zijn ook heel open over de technische kanten van het tattoo vak."

    Van oudsher is in geen enkel ander land ter wereld het tatoeëren artistieker en kleurrijker toegepast dan in Japan. Door de eeuwen heen zijn er daarvan kenmerkende voorbeelden op prenten (houtsneden, hoogdruk in langshout) afgebeeld en zulke prenten vertellen veel over de ontwikkeling van de tatoeage in Japan. In het zojuist verschenen boek “Ukiyo-e to Horimono” schetst auteur Jan van Doesburg aan de hand van originele Japanse prenten in chronologische volgorde de verschillende stadia van de Japanse tatoeage. Ook komen maatschappelijke en culturele aspecten aan bod en twee hoofdstukken zijn gewijd aan de techniek van de houtsnede. De prenten die bij de uitvoerige en goed gedocumenteerde tekst zijn afgebeeld, vormen het bewijsmateriaal voor diverse ter sprake gebrachte onderwerpen over de geschiedenis van de tatoeagekunst in Japan. De geselecteerde prenten zijn afkomstig uit collecties van musea, galerieën en particulieren, wereldwijd.
  • Na bijna zijn hele leven als bewaker in een gevangenis van St. Petersburg gewerkt te hebben, overleed Danzig Baldaev in 2005 op tachtig jarige leeftijd. Zijn levenswerk bestaat uit ruim drieduizend tekeningen van tattoos die hij bij de gevangenen aantrof. Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia (deel 1) bevat er tweehonderd, samen met zestig zwart-wit foto’s van Sergei Vasiliev. Achter in het laatste deel van deze trilogie is een overzicht van de betekenis van de bij de tattoos gebruikte motieven. Het boek begint met een interessante inleiding van Alexander Sidorov. Het gaat over het heden en verleden van de tattoos in de Russische gevangenissen en over het verband tussen die tattoos en die van de Engelse zeelui. Zo gebruikten beide groepen skulls, grommende tijgers, dolken met slang eromheen, zeilschepen, ankers, pin-ups, doorboorde harten etc.
