The Big Book of Bode Tattoos features over 400 images spanning more than a decade of creation. Contained within this chunky brick of a book you'll find: voluptuous "Bode Broads,” beloved characters from the Cheech Wizard comix, and Mark Bode's particular take on classic tattoo motifs, including dragons, fairies, demons, lions, butterflies and more. Bode's distinct style draws influence from the worlds of comic art, graffiti, and traditional tattooing. This confluence is often marked by bold, curvy outlines and clear shapes and forms.
Mark Bode has been doing custom tattoo work on the human body for over 13 years, in addition to his phenomenal artwork on inanimate media. Bode's father is the late legendary cartoonist Vaughn Bode. Mark has inherited and kept alive his father's many characters, the most famous of which is Cheech Wizard.
