'Rolling Stone Tattoo Nation' exposes this beautiful, dynamic art form in all its glory as embodied by the biggest pop icons of out time, from Drew Barrymore to Eminem, Melissa Etheridge to Johnny Depp, Busta Rhymes to Angelina Jolie.
One hundred striking full-colour and black-and-white images by such leading photographers as David LaChapelle, Mark Seliger, Annie Leibovitz, Peggy Sirota, Albert Watson, and Mary Ellen Mark chronicle the endless variety of tattoos, from simple black tribal designs to multicoloured tapestries covering entire body parts.
Complimenting the portraiture are provocative and revealing interviews and quotes from musicians, tattoo artists, and other pop-culture heroes. An introduction by David Ritz, a self-proclaimed tattoo addict and author of numerous books, including 'The Brothers', draws on his own joyous obsession with tattoos.
