The book is full of anecdotes and historical photographs of larger-than-life characters and tattoo hot spots: the raw area Nyhavn, where sailors and drunk Swedes got their tattoos, the even rougher Istedgade, which developed into a new tattooing hub in the 1980s, and Copenhagen, which was the heart and soul of tattooing in Scandinavia until the mid-seventies.
