The first volume of Chicano / Traditional denotes the art of tattooing that has remained true to its roots - an era where the skin was marked with homemade machines from cassette tape motors and guitar strings dipped in ink. The essence of black & gray is captured in the photography of co-author Edgar Hoill. The volume consists mainly of selected images, with quotes from artists and collectors, followed by interviews with Jack Rudy, the godfather of black & gray; in addition to the prodigal of the tattoo Jesus "Chuey" Quintanar. Their stories and tattoos precede the gallery, which includes tattoos from other pioneers of this style: Freddy Negrete, Brian Everett, and Mark Mahoney.

The Dark / Horror Volume plunges into the world of personal demons carried on the skin. Paul Booth, often named "The Lord of Darkness of the Tattoo" reveals some reasons why some choose these tattoos, and explains how his art was guided by his personal demons. Other tattoos pay tribute to popular culture horror. The artist Xu Zhicheng of Tianzhilong Tattoo in Beijing says in his interview that between inspiration from his dark work in vampire films, not from personal anguish. In this chapter, you will find everything from shrunken heads to Frankenstein and even famous artists turned into zombies.

The volume on Portrait / Photorealism encapsulates the works that take photorealistic ares and carry it on the body. While the other chapters also deal with realism, this chapter focuses on portrait, landscape, and fantastic images made real. Two renowned artists in this style, Bob Tyrrell and Andy Engel, talked about how they refined their craftsmanship as well as offering suggestions to help others in their works. Their interviews are followed by works that have invigorated the tattoo world, with the possibility of mastering a difficult art on a difficult canvas.
