Publisher's description: Following the success of Danish Tattooing, author Jon Nordstrom expands his scope, covering tattooing in Scandinavia to great effect. Nordic Tattooing is a historical survey tracing the development of the craft between 1885 and 1985, and is illuminated with stunning photographs, original tattoo flash and biographies of historically significant tattooists. In these countries with much maritime traffic and trade, amazing connections are made as the traditional styles travel far and wide and cross-pollinate with larger scale Japanese work, for instance. Read about the Danish King Frederik's (1899-1972) tattoos, acquired like so many others during his years of service in the navy. Beautifully bound in blue cloth and boards.
