TATTOO MYSTIQUE is the breath-
taking follow up to TATTOO DARLING a book celebrated for bringing tattoo aesthetic, nostalgia, magical vision together through the art and
personality of Dutch artist Angelique Houtkamp.
Angelique has built a deserved reputation as an artist and tattooist with a distinctive style, enchanting visual language and fresh vision of
history that has attracted sparkling fanfare and followers internationally.
This second volume documents a whole new collection of artworks, glimpses into Angelique s personal collection, marvellous photographs of
Angelique presenting the charms of her hometown Amsterdam, an introduction by internationally
renown artist Mike Giant and a comprehensive interview with Angelique.
Aspects of Victoriana sit along-side stylish Flappers; flamboyant Harlequins look death in the face; South Sea beauties juxtapose glimmering
Hollywood sirens; cake popping lovelies nest by half-woman/half-animal creatures all in a crisp,
boldly outlined style that references traditional tattoo flash with a feminine touch.
TATTOO MYSTIQUE takes us on an entrancing spin through the dreamy streets, dark alleyways, romantic boudoirs and mysterious coffee shoppes of Angelique s world of mystique. Gold foiled softcover.
