TATTOOING'S GUIDE TO SYMBOLISM
The COR MYSTERIUM series will be a multi-volume encyclopedia of tattoo symbolism. Each volume will feature a diverse selection of artwork from the world's best tattooers and will define the symbolic meaning found in each component of every image.
Volume One: "Tattooing's Guide to Symbolism," will focus on the traditional and iconic tattoo images that serve as the foundation of our craft. This volume features 197 original paintings from tattooing's most devoted artists at the forefront of the field. Each artist explains their piece in their own words and gives insight into the symbolism behind the images.
With more volumes to come, we hope to decode some of tattooing's most timeless images and inspire tattooers and collectors alike to compose tattoos that are not only visually appealing, but speak to the soul in a language that is deeper than words.
