Classic Flash 3: Japanese Style

Jeromey McCulloch & Justin "Lowercase j" Sellers

Available Now


Japanese folklore and modern American tattooing come
together in this book of more than 100 sheets of tattoo flash designed to be drawn
on the body in a single session. Exploring the rich history of Japanese ink
drawings and making readily tattooable images were the priorities of this third
book in the Classic Flash series. The
artists applied themes and characters from Japanese mythology, such as yōkai, to their traditional American aesthetic.
Divided into three sections, one each for designs by the artists individually,
and one with flash created collaboratively, the book features designs that have
gradually more complicated backgrounds, or filler. Tattoo collectors and
enthusiasts with an appreciation for manga, who may be intimidated by extremely
complex Japanese tattoo designs, will revel in this colorful, whimsical
collection of flash.
