Backpiece TattooJust about any tattoo artist will recognize his name – but some ink lovers that don’t keep up with the tattoo magazines may not realize what a big name Guy Aitchison is.  Guy has distinguished his art with his own unique style of tattooing and has written a book, Reinventing the Tattoo,  that specifically lays out the technique he uses for tattooing.  His technique is different from what the majority artists employ.  He uses a multiple pass technique that results in a bolder and straighter line.  I owned his book which was quite helpful in tatoo techniques – his work tends to focus on “natural geometry and organic structure “. He has also published helpful tattoo manuals, The Graphic Language for Tattooists and Special Effects for Tattooists which have been highly successful and sold thousands. His seminars are attended by hundreds every year. One of his more recent projects is a book he put out that contains artwork in the black and white medium – scratchboard created by tattoo artists.
