Our next entry is a bit of an equal time suggestion. We’ve given you a few ideas for gifts for people who enjoy looking at the female form, but today we have a book for folks who enjoy looking at beefcake photos of men, particularly big, muscled-up tattooed men.

After two successful volumes of Ink ‘N Girls, photographer Ákos Bánfalvi has turned his lens to tattoos on the male form with this collection of hunky dudes with art all over their bodies.

Male tattoo models show off their dazzling body art and open up about their backgrounds, interests, and opinions in this impressive collection of studio, open-air, black and white, color, and art photography. Tattoo artists and shop owners, musicians, athletes, actors, and other models from around the world expose their sculpted physiques as well as their thoughts on their own ink, “the business” in general, and society at large.

These hunks and hipsters discuss their careers and hobbies, first tattoos, and feelings about being models in a world where women tend to absorb most of the attention and admiration. These thoughtful interviews are accompanied by eye-catching images taken by some of the best photographers in the industry.

This is the perfect gift for the person on your holiday shopping list who enjoys oogling tattooed men. It’s also a great gift for any fan or practitioner of fine body art.  This is currently out of stock at Amazon, but can be ordered directly from Schiffer. There is a chance that your local bookstore could get a copy in before Christmas using the ISBN code above.
