Issue 123 of Total Tattoo Magazine is in the shops NOW!

In Total Tattoo this month we've hooked up with Japanese specialist Pete Oz from Tanuki Tattoo to bring you the fantastic lifestory of Horihide, a living legend of traditional Japanese tattooing. We meet up Nick Morte, who tells of his early life in Russia and how Russian culture has shaped his art. And we chat with Aimee Cornwell from Nemisis Tattoo, a second generation tattooist with ink in her blood. We hear from Ben Gadsby of Black Tide about the power of tattooing in helping women reclaim their bodies after mastectomy and breast reconstruction (and his customer shares her story too).

Irezumi-inspied furniture designer Gina McQuen shows us how she breathes new life into classic leather pieces. Illustration mastermind Godmachine tells us about his inspirational new book. And this month's cover model Tessa Kozlowski shares her tattoo story.

PLUS! Alan Damien from rock band 'The Living Dead Lights' shares his fantastic tattoo collection with us.

'In Focus' this month shines the spotlight on the crew from Bold as Brass in Liverpool. We've been out and about visiting the first ever Ink 'n' Art convention in Bournemouth, Travellin' Mick brings us his amazing photos and report from the Stockholm Inkbash, and Doralba Picerno reports from the Berlin Tattoo Convention.
