    One of the things that makes us so proud is

    being able to look back and see how much we

    have done together for the art of tattooing in

    all these years. This editorial adventure cost

    us lots of sacrifices and lots of hard work, but

    the passion for what we do gave us the strength to overcome

    obstacles and now with the progress of new technologies and

    the future prospects, we can hardly see back to the point where

    it all started. We started because we wanted to spread and

    enhance tattoo art in itself, at a time when those who werent

    in the field, didnt even know what it was or considered tattoo

    like something dirty, dangerous and immoral (but as Oscar

    Wilde said, all the beautiful things in life are immoral, illegal or

    fattening). Now we are ready for further development. Internet

    brought together our world into one big community (virtual

    and real) that uses the net as a source of inspiration. As before

    when internet wasnt around we looked for inspiration

    on the field, watching the works of the great tattooists live

    or admiring them on the few books available. Now, everything

    is just a click away and extremely fast to look up. The real

    problem is that there is no filter online and you can find

    anything and everything, often without any logical order.

    So we decided to concentrate our energies to create the biggest

    tattoo gallery ( in the world, offering

    our archive to everybody, organizing it by key word to make it

    easier to find that perfect tattoo.

    Furthermore, we purposely decided to select the tattoos,

    focusing on the best pieces, of both international and less

    famous artists, but certainly worth the while. The result: there

    are over twenty thousand top quality images to search through

    and admire. An archive that is constantly updated and that

    we believe will become one of the biggest world libraries of

    quality tattoos. We are proud to have created a space that

    wants to become a meeting place for the entire international

    tattoo world, a pillar around which professionals or simple

    tattoo enthusiasts looking for information, suggestions, images

    and, why not, the next tattoo artist can meet. We hope you

    appreciate this step into the future.
