the Back Cover --
For the first time ever,
snowboarding, tattooing and art collide. RIDES OF PASSAGE features 117
Burton Snowboards that were painted, sculpted, carved, made pretty, or
pretty dangerous by some of the world's finest tattooists, visionary
artists, graffiti artists, and illustrators. This collection is the
largest exhibit of fine art works by tattoo artists ever assembled.
Having traveled the world, from Woodstock to Los Angeles to New York
City, Tokyo and Europe, it has now come to you in the form of this
permanent archival document...Rides of Passage: The Book.
