With over 250 original images, showing the proud wearers of body art, this book takes the reader on a journey through China. From the mountains of Yunan, where the ethnic tribes people still maintain their tradition of marking the face with the butterfly designs they believe will transport them to heaven in the afterlife, across the plains of China to Hong Kong and the equally colorful world of ancient mariner tattoos. China Tattoo is provocative, substantially researched, and filled with stunning images.
