Greetings from Tattoo Education!
East Coast tattooer Dana Helmuth has been quietly turning out great Japanese style tattoo work for years and years. Now he's put together a pair of great Japanese style design books, which we're carrying here at our online store.
His new floral design book, Nectar, is just downright useful. With 50 pages of Japanese style floral motifs, it covers all bases from cherry blossoms to chrysanthemums to peonies, done in a range of different angles and placements to work on any part of the body. Whether you want to take advantage of the stencil-ready line art or simply use it as an inspirational reference resource, Nectar is a book that will get used again and again for years to come. Black and white, spiral bound, 50 pages, $50.
His new snake design book, Venom, is a great compliment to Nectar and a must-have for any tattooist who likes working in the Japanese style. Snakes are a timeless classic tattoo motif, and in these pages Dana presents dozens of snakes with a variety of patterns, positions and expressions, detailed in a classic style. All images are stencil-ready, or you can just make use of Venom as a helpful reference when drawing your own snakes. Black and white, spiral bound, 50 pages, $50.
We have a few more exciting design resource books coming out this Spring- we'll keep you posted!
