FREE GIFT: a canvas shopper with the exclusive design by Filip Leu for Tattoo Life

We can say that Filip Leu’s life, tattooing, and art have flowed along at the same pace over the forty-year tattooist’ career that’s covered in this volume: one aspect influences another, thus revealing the reflection of a major personality.

He is the person who created the stylistic details that are commonly used today: for example, the way he creates a dragon, waves, or water, and the large-format backgrounds he provides for his subjects – skulls in particular – along with numerous studies of eyeballs and dragon claws. This book is a catalogue raisonné of the art of the great master: it is organized chronologically, following his brilliant creativity for decades. The three threads of life-tattoo-art weave together throughout the four decades covered in the volume: 2020-2010 / 2010-2000 / 2000-1990 / 1990-birth. It aims to build tattoo culture and awareness, but most of all to serve as a study compendium for any tattooist who truly wants to see, understand and study contemporary tattooing from the technical standpoint, through one of its greatest artists.

Tattoo Life
presents an exclusive sneak peek of the two versions of the legendary Puma Suede Filip Leu has been working on: both the black leather and blue suede sneaker are decorated with custom designs by the great tattoo Master inspired by traditional icons of Japanese tattoo.

The grand master of tattoo Filip Leu embarked on a collaboration with Puma, five years on from the launch of the Ink on Suede project which has been going since 2010 when it was dreamed up to relaunch that true '70s icon, the legendary Puma Suede.

The artistic alliance between Filip Leu and Puma, with exclusive official partner Tattoo Life, gives rise to a special new collection of just 250 limited edition sneakers in two brand new versions decorated with magnificent designs inspired by the great icons of Japanese tattoo.

The black version has quality leather black uppers with the design embossed on the sides, a customised double insole and tongue with the new new Filip Leu logo.
The blue version is available in an even more limited edition with blue suede uppers and the design embossed on the sides, personalised tongue with the new Filip Leu logo and see-through sole decorated with a dragon design. Both have laces which are interchangeable and, naturally, custom-designed.
