Tattoos have been around for thousands of years. (The ancient Egyptians seemed to have favored geometric figures.) Regarded by many who wear them today as a form of personal identification, tattoo designs range from symbols of courage and patriotism to expressions of love and affection.
This collection of colorable tattoos — all adapted from patterns created during the first half of the 20th century — lets colorists of all ages apply their own eye-catching hues to thirty pages of intriguing designs. From frightening figures and powerful beasts to good luck symbols, pretty girls, and pierced hearts, the traditional tattoos represent a unique form of body art — and a great source of coloring fun.
