Tattoo typography

By | May 18, 2007

Here’s an interesting photo-book about tattoo typography — “Body Type: Intimate Messages Etched in Flesh,” by Ina Saltz (09-2006). Found on Tim Cole’s blog, and he’s with the Adobe InDesign team. “This book makes me wonder if the lack of a series of Body Art templates is a glaring oversight on our part,” says Tim.

Inspired by Dominic Monaghan’s bicep, I created a roundup a while back of textual tattoos: Link.
