Summary, etc.:
"Tattoos have played an important role in human culture for thousands of years. Ideal for the tattoo artist, anthropologist, or tattoo fan, this visula lexicon covers tattoos from hundreds of cultures and lists meanings, reasons for wearing, rites of pasage, and indicates placement for thousands of individual tattoos. Complete with nearly 650 illustations, the book breaks down the symbology of these tattoos, indicating the origin and significance of motifs from tattoo cultures that still exist and those that have been lost to history. The breadth and depth of this information serves to inspire today's tattoo artist and expand the knowledge of this ancient and global phenomena." -- back cover
