Mitch O'Connell Tattoos: 250 Designs
Published by Last Gasp
The book contains 250 tattoo designs by Mitch O'Connell. They're the best of his three sets of tattoo flash: Stewed, Screwed and Tattooed (2001), Done While Drunk (2002), and From the Bottom of the Barrel (2006). Each limited edition set sold for $100, and is now out of print. Mitch O'Connell: Tattoos collects the images in one easy-to-flip-through volume. Mitch O'Connell's art is reminiscent of the Old School Tattoo Art, from masters such as Sailor Jerry Collins and Don Ed Hardy; but it uses a more contemporary sense of themes, along with O'Connell's distinctive style. Mitch O'Connell: Tattoos is perfect for getting tattoo ideas or as a coffee table book.
"Wonderfully engaging and absorbing paintings. It's cartoony, kitschy and sometimes downright silly. It's chock full of of pop references and it's the art that Mitch O'Connell knows how to make better than anyone" -Juxtapoz.
