An absolute celebration of all things related to tattoos and punk as they intersect, and I don’t need to tell you that they intersect. I love tattoos and I love tattoo stories, and… what more can I say? Oh yeah, this is lovingly cut-and-pasted and in full-color, and unlike most mainstream tattoo magazines I come upon, full of heart—truly a love letter to tattooing and being tattooed. This issue also includes the story of Harley Flanagan’s chest tattoo, “one of the most iconic tattoos of the ’80s,” which is pretty cool, well-told, and makes me feel like I need to brush up on my iconic tattoo history. –jimmy cooper (
