About the Author
Nicholas Schonberger is an academic, journalist and author. His work on tattooing has informed museum exhibitions (notably "Skin and Bones: Tattoos and the American Sailor" – Independence Seaport Museum, Philadelphia, USA, October 2009 – February 2010), been featured in popular press, and presented within scholarly contexts (Popular Culture Association). Since 2011, Schonberger has served as an editor at Sang Bleu, where his expertise in modern tattooing merges seamlessly with the London-based company's contemporary focus.
TTTism is headed by Maxime Plescia-Buchi, a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans tattooing, typography, clothing design, creative direction and publishing. He founded Sang Bleu in 2006, and, though it began as a highly influential avant garde magazine, it has solidified as a global art project involving fashion, fine art, performance art, literature, sociology, and tattooing. Plescia-Buchi operates two tattoo studios, Sang Bleu London and Zurich, and helmed creative projects for industrial design company Gabriel Scott, musicians FKA Twigs and Kanye West, and Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot.
