The new book by TATTOO LIFE
We are proud to present our new book: 10 Years of Grindesign – The art of Robert Borbas. 300 pages of his work, ranging from t-shirt designs, heavy metal album covers, personal illustrations and sketches for tattoos in the Black and Grey style for which Robert Borbas has become a leading light for all lovers of the genre.
Starting out as an illustrator, he manages to bring to skin the dynamism and fluidity of the drawing which distinguishes his graphic illustrations and his world teeming with characters that seem to emerge from some Gothic cathedral, those statues of monsters that look like animals and strange creatures that defy description. We had an interesting chat with him about this book where he describes his amazing world, his imagination, what he selected and how the book came to be.
So, ladies and gent, welcome to the backstage of 10 YEARS OF GRINDESIGN – THE ART OF ROBERT BORBAS. (You will find the complete interview with Robert in the next issue of Tattoo Life magazine).

This release is something I will be proud of for the rest of my life and it’s a 100%.
