Again in October of final 12 months I wrote an article that was half evaluate of a ebook entitled, “Tattooed Super Models” and half preview of it is successor, “Tattooed Beauties”.
Properly, I’ve had “Tattooed Beauties” for some time now (Sorry for the delay, Matthew) and I’ve lastly managed to take a seat down and evaluate it.
I will start by saying that if lovely ladies and tattoos are your factor, you aren’t going to be disenchanted. Fifty three lovely, tattooed and pierced fashions are crammed onto 256 pages. The ebook is a factor of high quality, the pages are thick and opulent and the entire thing feels ‘substantial’ as quickly as you choose it up.
As soon as open you might be greeted by Riae, or extra precisely, her strategically coated torso which after all is roofed with an attention-grabbing assortment of tattoos. After a quick introduction to the ebook (in 5 languages), it is the photographs that do the speaking.
Christian Saint and Goliath Books have delivered one other “does what it says on the tin” masterpiece, no intelligent title required right here. “Tattooed Beauties” is strictly what this ebook is stuffed with.
I’ve to confess, nevertheless, that I did discover myself just a little conflicted at occasions. I’m a self-confessed tattoo junkie and one or two of the pictures felt as if much less would have been extra. Had I been selecting which of Abbey So’s tattoos to do a full web page shut up of, I am afraid the “Meow” located simply above her genitals would not have been it. However what do I do know? Christian Saint has been a grasp of his craft for a few years, I suppose he is aware of his artwork higher then I do.
I additionally discovered the indexing system laborious, bordering on tedious. Alphabetically listed fashions (who’re additionally numbered), cross referenced with web page numbers and equally tattoo artists listed in the identical A-Z style who’re in flip cross referenced numerically with the mannequin however alas there’s nothing to point which artist did which tattoo and these women have plenty of tattoos. The index is as clumsy as my description of it. I gave up ultimately.
I digress, these are minor gripes a few ebook which is, general, magnificent in each its content material and manufacture. Christian Saint’s work is as soon as once more extra Rolls Royce than Ford Fiesta and I am fairly positive that this may not be the final we see from him. Whereas I personally really feel there would be the occasional pointless show of genitalia there’s nonetheless nothing tawdry about their inclusion.
When you love lovely, tattooed ladies and you liked “Tattooed Super Models” then you will love “Tattooed Beauties“. As for me, I am off to ponder what has gone fallacious with my life when 256 pages of beautiful ladies with no garments on leaves me pissed off on the index.
