    This book is rife with racism, swastikas, and racist caricatures/ minstrel imagery, the most disturbing being an image of a black man in a noose, wearing a KKK hood, with the phrase “N**** RIGGED” attached. I have a deep love and appreciation for traditional tattooing but any apology for this kind of imagery is disgusting. As tattooers we need to stop tolerating bigotry under the thin guise of "history" and atone for the shameful racism in our industry. There are a million better reference books This book is rife with racism, swastikas, and racist caricatures/ minstrel imagery, the most disturbing being an image of a black man in a noose, wearing a KKK hood, with the phrase “N**** RIGGED” attached.

There are a million better reference books out there, Amazon/Tilt/Suppliers needs to stop selling this book and pay all profits in reparations.

    Really good book for old tattoo referencing even though it's been done in the modern era don't take it away from the old school tattoo artists who paved the way for this generation of tattooist and the fact that a lot of them still prefer to tattoo old school to New school, I suppose its all in the preference of the person.
