Danish Tattooing traces the visual development from 1895 up to the present day, with the Golden Age of the 1960s particularly rich on fascinating tales from a rough scene. The book is full of anecdotes and historical photographs of larger-than-life characters and tattooing hotspots: the raw Nyhavn, where sailors and drunken Swedes got their tattoos and the even rougher Istedgade, which developed into a new tattooing hub in the 1980s.
