Tattoo: Secrets of a Strange Art first appeared in 1933, when the majority of people with tattoos were sailors, prostitutes and criminals. Venturing from waterfront tattoo parlours to circus midways, author Albert Parry talked to many of the great tattoo artists of the twentieth century about their techniques. Parry was among the first to analyze the customs subconscious motivations and to expose its erotic implications. His stories examine overt and subliminal tattoo messages of masochistic tendencies, membership in a select society, sexual fantasy and romantic devotion, patriotism and religious zest. A unique historical document and a compelling psychological study, this book offers a thought-provoking look at one aspect of the human drive for self-expression.
First published in 1933 by Simon and Schuster New York; Republished by Dover Publications UK
