Beginning with a handful of paintings, the Tattooed Portraits Series quickly developed into an obsession and a life-changing event for artist Shawn Barber. The series documents contemporary tattoo culture and history through fine art paintings ranging from traditional portraits to colorful, expressionistic abstractions. This beautifully printed volume contains photographs, paintings and essays chronicling a six-year living journal.
