About the Book
..This is a tattoo portfolio.. of sorts, of the works in flesh of award-winning tattoo artist Lisa Schmoldt .. tattooing for the last 16 years.. she has traveled to numerous conventions states and countries globally, crafting her fine art in skin.. musing with other inspirational artists who are also notably mentioned in this book. It is a nice coffee table book filled with poetic quotes and serves as a great memento if you have been tattooed by me or as a great gift if you are one of the clientele featured in the book or an artist who may find my work to be inspiring as I remain relatively unpublished in the industry magazines.
I have been in and around tattooing since the early nineties..tattooing 16 years professionally. I remain out there on the convention circuit , recently in Sept 2006 I opened my own studio ..Otherside Ink on the sunny west coast of Florida.. I am offering this coffee table style sampling of finished works in skin for your reading pleasure and to hopefully inspire other up and coming artisans in the trade.. as I do not submit to the magazines and my work remains largely unseen except by those who attend.. many of these pieces can be seen via the website, however, after many requests to purchase this particular volume of work ,I am now offering to the public, clientele and artists as well. Hopefully it will provide inspiration and serve as an early memento of my blossoming works in progress. as always thank you for your support. ~ Lisa Schmoldt
