Jon Reiter, who himself tattoos at Milwaukee's Solid State, has released the second volume in his terrific series on the great Amund Dietzel. A sailor, sideshow act, and craftsman, Dietzel tattooed for over sixty years. Volume two of These Old Blue Arms delves into the artist's life — his family history, as well as key moments of his important contributions to classic American tattoo design (notably the crawling panther). A must for anyone curious about the rich history of tattooing.
