Shawn Barber has been chronicling tattoo culture by way of his paintbrush for nearly ten years. Barbers’ second book, the 250 page “Forever & Ever” came out in March. Like his first book, Tattooed Portraits, Forever and Ever showcases Barber’s impressive impressions of tattoo culture while going deep into the history and mechanics of getting inked. Barber, who credits Spanish painter Diego Velazquez as an early inspiration, started drawing art on real people himself in 2006.
