From his home base in Denmark, Jakob Schultz interviewed tattooists from around the world, with an emphasis on Scandinavian artists. Each featured artist says a little about his or her craft and then the pictures do the talking. Photographer Michael Caddy Søndergaard captures the personalities and styles of the tattooists, and then the fresh ink of their clients, with great flair. Every speck of ink, right down to the pores of living canvases, is revealed in stunning detail. Inkslingers features Clod the Ripper, Derek Baker, Guil Zekri, Bob Tyrrell, Eva Schatz, Kai Uwe Faust, Colin Dale, Jason Angst, Carl Löfqvist, Jens Bergström, Jón Páll, Randy Engelhard, Tony Raita, Erin Chance, Henning Jørgensen, Iver Görtz, Christopher Henriksen, Aaron Bell, Dino Baby, Porky Pete, Coney Island Demon, Tattoo Mini, Dennis Wheeler, and Sabine Grønhøj.
