The sensual tattoo is one of the most striking examples of traditional Zen art, but also one which has been a well-kept secret for centuries. In this stunningly beautiful and extraordinary book, Aleksander Bilinski, an internationally recognized master of the Zen tattoo, brings together a collection of the best examples of contemporary tattoos to show the wonderful variety of the form and its variations, each with facing commentary. The commentary focuses on the meaning of the tattoo and its spiritual meaning and provides an analysis of each artist’s technique.
