Tattoo Magazine booksWhat makes a good tattoo magazine? According to critics and readers, that’s partly a function of the various aspects of the subculture you affiliate yourself with, but what it really comes down to is the quality of images and information. A tattoo magazine should be able to give you both. Top Tattoo MagazinesHere are some of the top-rated tattoo magazines. Skin and Ink and Tattoo Flash are general interest, with some tattooing articles geared for people who already have few tattoos – they’re not geared for novices, particularly. For the most part these magazines (as well as Tattoo Revue) are about the tattoo art. You might be able to pick up a wealth of free tattoo designs from these magazines, which are glossy and feature high quality images.Tattoo Savage and International Tattoo Art both have a more global scope – the latter in particular. The tattoo articles and photos in these magazines show tribal and ethnic tattoos; again, this is a fabulous place to get ideas and information, not to mention free images. Some people read tattoo magazines for a while before getting their first tattoo. For others, it’s something they pick up later. After you get a tattoo, you might find that your are so excited about it, you can’t help reading and looking at whatever you can find. Women’s OnlyThere is at least one prominent tattoo magazine that is geared primarily toward women – it’s called, appropriately enough, Tattoos for Women, and though it has fewer glossy images, it offers solid advice. Men's OnlyLuckily men are not left out in the cold, there's a tattoo magazine geared towards men as well and guess how it is called... You're right, Tattoo for Men, filled to the brim with testosterone.Finding a tattoo magazine on your newsstand or magazine ship may or may not be a challenge. All too often newsstands tend to carry only mainstream publications, but then again what is considered ‘mainstream’ may vary according to the community you’re in! So by all means, check for tattoo magazines wherever you regularly buy magazines, but don’t be discouraged it you don’t find them there. Most major cities have magazine stores that carry a much greater variety, the whole shop being devoted to magazines – you are more likely to find a tattoo magazine (or several different ones) in store like that. Also, keep in mind that most magazines have online subscriptions now, so that’s an option you can check out if you can’t find the tattoo magazine you’re looking for at a store or newsstand.
