A unique and stimulating book on the elusive and secretive Chinese world of permanent body illustration. With more than 250 original images showing the proud wearers of body art, author Chris Wroblewski takes readers on a journey through China: from the mountains of Yunan, where the ethnic tribespeople still maintain their tradition of marking the face with butterfly designs that they believe will transport them to heaven in the afterlife, across the plains of China to Hong Kong and the equally colourful world of ancient mariner tattoos.
