just beautiful illustrative work from tatsuro kiuchi
Russian criminal tattoos have a complex system of symbols which can give quite detailed information about the wearer. Not only do the symbols carry meaning but the area of the body on which they are placed may be meaningful too.
my childhood was basically made up of enid blyton and roald dahl. the BFG, matilda, twits, witches… then i found two collections of his adult short stories (switch bitch and kiss kiss – exactly like in the pic above) in the bookcase at home and read them over and over again, until the pages started falling out. i thought the psychedelic sex scene at the end of ‘bitch’ was especially amusing. if you find them, buy them! ps: how great are penguin & pelican book covers? my illustration lecturer used to cream his pants over them.
