Nordic Tattooing

Nordic Tattooing is a new historical book of tattooing from Nordstroms Forlag by writer and photographer Jon Nordstrøm, the publisher of the hotly debated and highly acclaimed Danish Tattooing.


Nordic Tattooing provides an interesting look into the development of tattooing in the Nordic countries between 1885 and 1985. The Swedish tattooists, who were sailors and tattooed Norwegians, and the Danish tattooists who gathered in Nyhavn and tattooed drunk Swedes are all in the book. The book is full of large photos, befitting a true coffee table book.
