For our second book we envisioned a collection of contemporary Shunga, the classic Japanese erotic art form. We also decided that this book should only showcase female artists and their interpretation of the genre. We have invited a number of artists, both friends and people within the network of creatives we have built during our long careers as tattooers and artists, as well as a number of both established and up and coming artists that we admire. The collection represented in this book will be as diverse and creative as the sum of all this wonderful female artists put together.

This presentation will change as the project moves moves ahead and thereby assumes shape and form, as will the already impressive list of artists published below. The release of this book is preliminary set for the first half of September 2018. Stay tuned for further developments!
