Tattoos, like flowers, flourish organically – because that’s how art evolves over time.
Sören Sangkhul’s bestselling book, Japanese Flora, was an instant hit when it was originally released in 2018. It was an intensive exploration of the flowers used in Japanese tattoo designs, such as cherry blossoms, chrysanthemums, lotus flowers, and peonies. The book also highlighted not only the inherent beauty of the plants but also how no two flowers are ever completely the same.
The book was such a success that Kintaro Publishing printed a second edition, which also sold out. Now, Sören has compiled a third special edition of Japanese Flora, which features 40 exclusive new pages, designed to complement the existing designs and enhance the reading experience.
This hardcover tattoo book has a limited print run of 1,000 copies. It’s portrait-orientated (27cm by 38cm), and printed on Munken Pure 150gr paper, to ensure it lasts for years to come. As a special edition, it also has 148 pages, making it a real collector’s piece.
Sören has specialized in traditional Japanese design for years and has a formidable reputation in the tattoo scene. If you’re a fan of intricate Japanese artwork, then this special edition tattoo book is the perfect addition to your collection.
