New Zealand Tattoo is launched
Last evening Libro International launched New Zealand
Tattoo at a huge event at Real Groovy in central Auckland.
of the tattooists and models featured in the book were there to celebrate the
launch of this, the first book on contemporary New Zealand tattooing in almost
20 years. Our thanks and appreciation to all who supported the book, and
especially to tattooing legend Merv O'Connor who spoke on behalf of the
tattooists to support the launch.
Chris Hoult and writer Steve Forbes were kept busy signing books after the
formalities, with a great response to the book. Cheers to Marty O'Donnell and
his team at Real Groovy for hosting the event - they have the book on special
for $65 for a limited period.
