A collection of hand-painted tattoo flash by prolific artist John Wesley Harden, a one-time member of the notorious Outlaws Motorcycle Club. Hardens hand-painted flash embodies tattoo imagery of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s that was popular among biker subculture and military personnel primarily in the south-eastern region of the United States. Harden bounced between Florida and Alabama, which is where he drew his inspiration for most of his unique designs. Although this book is not his complete collection of painted works, the imagery here captures the essence of a time in history when tattooing was mysterious, magical, and dangerous.
