Scratch Art by Tattooists unique gift

Looking for a unique gift for the art lover or tattoo collector in your life? Check out the Scratch Art Project – a project by Guy Aitchison, who requested original art from hundreds of tattoo artists (including Awen Briem here at Art With a Point!) and compiled them into this fantastic collection of scratch art by tattooists. Here’s a peek at the book in a quick video!
