The charismatic Kat Von D, the star of LA Ink, with writer Anthony Bozza (author of best-sellers "Slash" and "Tommyland") opens the door to the world of contemporary tattooing, the way only a true insider can. The book will be targeted to the tattoo audience, particularly the younger demographic that actively gets tattoos. It will include Kat's story, what inspires her, information about her show and her shop, her sketches, and her personal tattoos (she's a walking tattoo). The thrust of the book is on her point of view on tattooing now: the work she finds inspirational, past and present; great tattoo artists, from a classic artist like Sailor Jerry to people she admires who are working around the world.The book will feature the work of and profiles of/interviews with a range of contemporary tattoo artists. It will also include lots of profiles of /interviews with people who have interesting tattoos and all the stories behind them, which is a very intriguing aspect of her show. The book will have a strong voyeuristic, human interest factor along with a wealth of great line art and photography, which is being shot for the book by Lionel Deloy.Finally, the book will include humourous visual thematic portfolios of Kat's work and aspects of tattooing she finds compelling. The examples include: Kat's portrait tattoos (for which she is famous); great work in typography, back pieces, memorials, body suits, and more.

The book itself is really good quality and well made.

I love this book it gives a deeper understanding of tattoos in general aswell as kats own experiences. I've always had a tattoo obsession and this book really helps you think about your designs alot more.

Another good thing is that the book is full or pictures which makes it alot easier to picture what kat is talking about.

My favourite book of all time!

 Amazing Quality pictures and book

When you first unwrap this book you will see what I mean. The cover is soft and pillowy, the pictures are vibrant and just POP from the page, and even the fonts used are beautiful.

This book goes through not only Kat's life and tattoos (and clears up what really happened on Miami Ink) but also her clients, friends, other artists - all with fantastic quality tattoo pics.

Don't just think this is a book for tattoo lovers, it's a book for anyone who loves visual arts.

I am really glad I got this.

This book is truely amazing, whether you love or hate tattoos you still admire the amount of hard work and the desirable art that Kat Von D and other tattooists, which she mentions in the book, have done to get this far. This is by far the best book in my collection and has my friends dribbling in awe.
