The ultimate Shane Tan collection
Singaporean tattoo legend Shane Tan is a hard man to categorize. Drawing
inspiration from sources as diverse as the woodblock images of Kunisada and the
punk rock sensibility of Sid Vicious, there simply is no other artist like him. Beginning
his career at the age of sixteen, he has defied the odds to earn a stellar reputation on the global tattooing scene – with fans flocking from all over the world to get tattooed with one of his strikingly bold bodysuits.
And now, you can discover the work of this unparalleled talent like never before with
Kintaro’s beautiful edition. Bringing together the largest selection of his
work to date, this remarkable retrospective contains hundreds of high-quality photos
of Shane’s tattooing, as well as sections dedicated to his paintings and line
drawings. To accompany this visual odyssey, Shane unpacks his tattooing journey
and inspirations in a series of candid, in-depth interviews – revealing the people and
moments that made him the artist he is today.
“I’m super-excited to share my art with the world in this amazing
volume. So much care has gone into it – it’s a real love letter to the craft and the creative process.”
