Thanks to my friend Aston, I recently got a copy of SANG BLEU issue 5.
Split into two volumes with 308 pages combining tattoo culture, fetish, art, fashion editorials, interviews and essays it is a true masterpiece, a magazine that would be kept for a lifetime. I think what makes Sang Bleu so special is the new territory it is exploring: the combination of tattooing, high fashion and theory presented in an honest and unpretentious way. Available at Magazino for $100, it's the size of 4 or 5 regular magazines, so it's pretty cheap really.
