Disintegration Issue #2

* Prices shown without VAT.


Afterlife is excited to present the sophomore issue of Disintegration. With this series, we aim to combine the style and aesthetic of our previous publications with shorter interviews, conversations with the world’s best tattoo artists, and articles written by tattoo historians.

The second issue features interviews with Oliver Macintosh, Anderson Luna, Greg Whitehead, Marina Inoue and Kahlil Rintye. As if that wasn’t enough of a full power roster, Michael McCabe returns with another original piece of in-depth tattoo journalism focusing on the legendary Tony Polito.

A huge THANK YOU to the amazing, talented and supportive people who put in the time and effort to bring this to fruition.

ABOUT DISINTEGRATION: AFTERLIFE is beyond proud to share our newest publication series, DISINTEGRATION: tattoo inspiration in print. Each issue includes in-depth interviews with today’s leading tattooers - conversations about art, tattooing and life - and essays by historians and artists alike. Our goal with Disintegration is to shed light on tattooing’s histories and lineages while also showcasing artists of all ages and backgrounds. By creating printed volumes that explore these aspects of tattooing, we hope to recreate the magic of the printed tattooing magazines and books of the past - publications that are increasingly rare due to the internet and social media. These past publications created a special aura around tattooing - a secret world that we hope to revive with Disintegration. We want to create a space for something brand new yet steeped in tradition. We want you to be able to hold a book in your hands and discover why and how an artist makes the work they do. What is your favorite tattooer’s story? What drives us? These are the questions Disintegration aims to answer.
