His PhD thesis is titled, ‘Beyond the Epidermis: A practical investigation into contemporary western tattooing’. It is the first piece of academic literature to utilise tattooing practice as a core methodology, and provides contributions to knowledge relating to tattooing practice and practitioner. Tattoo historian Matt Lodder described Adam's research as, "...the most in-depth, detailed and considered first-person account of tattoo practice in the academic literature”.
