Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Tattoo Chronicles is an illustrated diary that offers an intimate look at a crucial year in the personal and professional life of Kat Von D, the charismatic, no-holds-barred tattooer and star of LA Ink.

When Kat does a tattoo, she writes an entry about it in her journal, reflecting not only on the significance of the tattoo for the person who is receiving it but also on how the experience of creating this tattoo affects her personally.

In these diary entries—some poignant, some hilarious, some confessional—Kat lays it on the line about how doing these tattoos influences her life and art. Here are the highs and the lows, the good, the bad, and the ugly—including her feelings about her fame, family, love life, friends, and fans.

Visually stunning, this graphically compelling diary is jam-packed with tons of Kat's images, from sketches of her tattoos to the finished works, and candid shots of her unusual personal collections—all photographed by Kat herself. Fans will love reading about her array of clients from all walks of life, including Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister, Dave Navarro, and members of Metallica, Green Day, Kings of Leon, and the Eagles. Throughout The Tattoo Chronicles are captivating, color photographs of Kat that were taken specifically for the book, published here for the first time.

Here she is: the real Kat Von D: unscripted and uncensored!

Loved this book, it is so differently done, from Kat's diary pages to the illustrations scattered around the pages.It gives a great insight into working in or running a tattoo studio and also into Kat as a person/artist/tattooist etc. I really could not put this book down.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes tattoos, Kat Von D and to anyone who likes to read things that are slightly "off the wall". High Voltage Tattoo

Format: Hardcover
This is a book I have bought for someone as a gift, and have yet to give it to them.. first of all the book is graphically designed to rock and roll perfection from the colours to the typefaces to the photography used. The whole book has a real gothic / glam feel and is full of personal diary entries supported and enhanced by the stunning, visually amazing tattoos and of course the clients that KVD comes into play with. Tattoos are not just an art form on the skin, but as this book suggests, they bring people together through touching emotional stories and real life events. Kat Von D is not only stunning but is incredibly down to earth considering her artistic talents and the fame she has found through her passion for tattooing. This is a great coffee table book for those yet to experience the world of tattooing and of course for those who already have. Would totally recommend to all KVD lovers.

A very personal insight into KVD's life- which sometimes makes for very uncomfortable reading knowing she has now split from Nikki Sixx- but the main part of this book is the stunning tattoo work and the stories behind the people. The book is beautiful- a piece of art in itself- and I'm a huge KVD fan and treasure this book very much.

I think this is my favourite book from Kats 3 books. The artwork is stunning. A Kindle copy would not do it justice. Has journal writings and tattoo photos from clients and tattoos of hers. Will look great on my bookcase. Very pleased. For all tattoo lovers is a must.
