Tattoos are works of art where your body serves as the canvas. Most people opt for one of two small tattoos at a time, but there are those enthusiasts who decide to make full use of their available space and get full body tattoos from head-to-toe. The most common form of full body tattoos is a collage made up of dozens of smaller tattoos.

A lot of people who use this method tend to have an overarching theme that ties many of the tattoos together to create one large work of art, like when someone uses a bunch of smaller pictures to make one giant picture.

Chris Trevino: Gods and Warriors Book Preview2

Gods and Warriors… This is a fitting title for Chris Trevino’s first book. His tattoos often depict these precise themes. But more notably, the title is actually fitting for Chris himself. In many ways he embodies the eternal qualities of the warrior hero or the deified persona of an ancient culture’s history; in short, a modern knight in quest for the mythic grail. His accomplishments, perhaps in a slightly older culture and rendered symbolically in the romantic style, could very well be the foundation of myth. Read More »
