Tattoo Street Style

Wahoo, our editor wrote her first book!

Outside the world of Oh Comely, our editor, Alice Snape, has been busy trotting the globe – well eight super-cool cities to be precise – seeking out stylish tattooed folk to compile into her first book, Tattoo Street Style (published by Ebury Press). Really, it was just an excuse to stop and find out more about those people on the street that you just have to know who did that tattoo or where they got those jeans from… It features more than 400 original portraits in cities from London and Brighton to LA and NYC, and a directory of studios in each city, a guide to tattoo styles and a personal foreword from tattoo artist Cally-Jo.

Here's a sneak peek, it's out today in all good bookshops. Happy publication day, Alice Snape!
