Since 1966Book - 2011
In recent years, the "tattoo artist sketchbook" has become a valuable resource for great tattoo ideas and designs. Although Jim Watson's tattoo style is normally recognized for being bright and colorful, these sketches show the reader the drawing technique and sketching process of a tattoo artist. The pages contain valuable reference sketches for tattoo artists, and is a great source for easy-to-copy, and easy-to-perform tattoo designs. For anyone who needs to tattoo a "Mom" across a traditional heart, or "Harley-Davidson" down someone's arm, Jim provides a variety or simple and elaborate "fonts" so you're sure to have the correct type style for a given situation. Produced on heavy paper with a soft cover, Jim's personal sketches are bound so the book lies flat on a table, all the better to fully study and utilize the numerous images. This collection will help everyone from new artists to journeymen; as well as their clients, to select (and, if needed, modify) the tattoo that they want and need.
