Milton H Zeis: Tattooing As You Like It

I just saw on Occult Vibration that preorders are up for Milton H Zeis: Tattooing As You Like It put out by Yellow Beak Press. I’ve been waiting for this book to drop for quite some time. Via Yellow Beak Press:

“A biography and tribute to one of tattooing’s most legendary figures. This book follows Zeis’s life from birth, documenting his many interests as well as his formidable ventures in tattooing. This book documents the life and work of this influential man, from the young days train-hopping to his adult years running The Zeis Studio and performing as Uncle Milty the clown. It also includes 95 of today’s best tattooers paying homage to Zeis by repainting some of the most iconic flash sheets distributed by The Zeis studio from the 1920s to the 1970s.”

 Not only will this book chronicle the life of Zeis, but it will also have some amazing tattooers reinterpreting Zeis’ work. Here’s a list of the artist that will be contributing:

I am an avid traditional tattoo enthusiast that enjoys the rich culture, history, and art of tattoos. At this point in time, I'm slowly but surely adding to my tattoos.
