Before now, tattoo art has customarily gained little or no repute from the art world, thereby making it look more or less irrelevant to the folk art tradition. However, times have changed, and there is a whole lot more recognition of this beautiful art. A whole lot of people, both old and young, have wholeheartedly embraced tattooing as much more than just a mere kind of body decoration but solely as art. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see tattoo arts displayed gallantly in galleries, basic and extensive art books, where people can view collected body art pieces done by popular tattoo artists, all around the world. 

So to further broaden our horizon, we at Kintaro Publishing have collaborated with quite a good number of artists to put together and publish eye-catchy and interesting artistic and tattoo related books. Ideally, we have created a milestone for others to imitate by portraying as the best in the industry.

Right below is an extensive list of some of the best tattoo artists' biographies. These artists haven't only influenced this website; they have solidly contributed to the success standing of tattoo art today.
