This September will see the release of 'Meeting the Masters', a new book by French photographer Zozios filled with striking portraits of master tattoo artist Horiyoshi III and 45 esteemed tattooers from around the world. 

Each participating artist will explore their own relationship to the legendary Japanese artist Horiyoshi III, commenting on the master's phenomenal legacy in tattooing.

The project began when Zozios, a.k.a. Mathieu Rossignol, was initiated to the world of tattooing after meeting Horiyoshi III in October 2012. Since then, he has continued to follow and document the tattoo scene, travelling the globe to capture portraits of the most important characters in tattoo culture.

'Meeting the Masters', published by Tattoo Life, is sure to be a gem in any tattoo enthusiast's collection, the intimate portraits honouring many of tattooing's most iconic artists. 

The London Tattoo Convention are thrilled to display 'Meeting the Masters' this September 27-28-29th at Tobacco Dock. Tickets to the event are now on sale; get yours today!
