The heritage of traditional American tattooing is extensive and rich, encompassing unique design motifs and themes that represent the desires, loves, and ambitions both of the artists and the individuals who adorn their bodies with these artworks. Despite its significance, this authentic folk art form is often underappreciated.

In this book, the author pays homage to renowned American tattoo artists such as Paul Rogers, Leonard "Stoney" St. Clair, George Burchett, August "Cap" Coleman, Percy Waters, Owen James, and others. The author meticulously studied their works and distilled their classic styles into five distinct colors: black, red, yellow, green, and brown. The book showcases over 640 individual flash designs, both classic designs by the author and collaborative works with other tattoo designers, all presented in vivid color. This impressive collection serves as a celebration of the traditional American tattooing tradition and a tribute to the hope that it will continue to thrive as an authentic folk art.
