Sacred Skin Review on Tattoo Blog!


Sacred Skin, my book on Thailand’s sacred tattoos, with images by Aroon Thaewchatturat, a current bestseller in Southeast Asia, has been reviewd on a blog named Free Tattoo Patterns Online who had this to say:

“…Vater has a long history of writing about the subcultures of this part of the world and talks with authority on the story behind the tattoos. When paired with Aroon’s stunning photos, you have a book that goes beyond the basics to truly draw you into this world that so few have seen…”

If you have not got a copy yet, Sacred Skin is the ideal Christmas present for anyone with an interest in tattoos or Asian culture. Check out the books’s official website.
