Tattooing and tattoo art is traditionally known as folk art, which subsequently means that it has been regarded as a low-brow medium, receiving no appreciation or attention from the art world. Times have changed however, and tattoo art nowadays has moved towards galleries and art books, to people actively collecting pieces on their skin made by the top artists from the tattoo world.

Kintaro Publishing has collaborated with several artists, for instance by putting together and publishing art- and tattoo books, but also by just simply shining a light on the work of the best in the industry.

Below you can find biographies of the artists featured on this website, but also of artists that in a major way have contributed to what makes tattooing an art form today.
