About this project

Generation to come - limited edition art book of contemporary tattooing

The idea to create this book has begun with my passion for exceptional tattooers with fresh ideas of how tattoos can be done. I felt moved every time I found someone with an original style, technique or strong ideology behind their work. As in any other art form geniuses mostly are real personalities with unique approaches to life, I focus on exposing tattoos as an indistinguishable part of the personal expression of today's generation. In this book you can find evolved traditional styles, witness effect of internet culture and popular media and also feel the influence of ideas by modern artists and thinkers. By looking in the context of modern culture I see tattooing escape from the zeitgeist of subcultural connotations and evolve into new exciting forms of art.

So for this book I invited what I believe the most exceptional artists of today's tattoo generation to share their work and things they relate to. It's almost 200 pages of intimate parallels of these very different people who manage to transcend the essence of what today's generation is about. It's exciting to see how these artists with different art backgrounds adapt their techniques and ideas in tattooing. 

 Book content is divided into five sections, starting with BOLD style which is closest to the traditional tattooing. Following with insights dedicated to different aspects which I believe are definitive in today's tattooing and generation as a whole: popular culture, femininity, abstractionism and finally an ignorant style. That way I want reader to see how wide spectrum of today's tattooing is.

 

 

 I am honestly surprised to get so much attention and trust from people I invited. It was the main drive to put the concept of the book in practice. I seek to print a high quality product and make you satisfied having this item in your collection. Also in this book I introduce a manifesto with the intention to inspire today's and coming generations of tattooing.

 

I offer you to preorder this book and be one of the two hundred people who will be the first to get signed copies with discount and free delivery. The book will be printed with offset technology in a professional printing house. Also your support means that I wont stop and keep realising my other ideas of books and maintain it as my artistic expression. 

  

All the best to you,

Paul

Risks and challenges

Christmas soon so print houses are real busy, so most of the work would be done on January.There can be unexpected issues and need to correct files to make best looking print, there can be several test prints before printing final product. Finally delivery can be different for everyone depending on how far away you are. I believe we definitely can do it for February.
