Tattoo Sketchbook by Nate Powers
This book was sent to me for review via LibraryThing.
Nate Powers is very talented with his art. This book is full of beautiful images--colored as well as black and white. The viewer is given drawn images as well as tattoos. I do feel that the theme ran very dark, though. Skeletons, zombie-like portrayals, and other dark images were presented. Even the angelic images had a dark edge to them. Although they were drawn very well, I found myself wishing for more themes. I love tattoos and have a few myself so I was looking forward to reviewing this book. I would like to see Mr. Powers show less dark themed tattoos. If he can do more than what is presented in this book it will really show his talent.
I gave this book 3/5 stars.
