This is a stunning photography collection on the use of typography in tattoo art, with an introduction and commentary provided by designer, Ina Saltz.

The book has the written messages divided up into the following categories: Literature, poetry, lyrics; Typography; self-expression; self love; love; politics; religion; belief systems; and homage. This book captures the trend of message tattoos and explores the idealogy behind the letters involved in this indelible committment.
