I had some reservations when I purchased this book because it was my first tattoo coffee table book. Thankfully it was worth the money; in fact I thought it should have been more. Wonderful artwork and designs, vibrant colours, great commentary and a huge book. I've taken inspiration for some of my own tattoo collections from this book. I great gift or buy for someone who wants to get a tattoo or who can appreciate the art form that it is. Not at all a tacky book but one of substance. A must buy for art lovers, tattoo enthusiasts, body artists or anyone who wants to learn more.

This book really is what it says on the cover! Full of inspirational tattoos, creative techniques and amazing art work! A real must have for anyone interested in tattooing/ tattoos or art in general! Full of different tattoo styles. Great book, really interesting! I've even got some inspiration myself for some tattoos. You won't be disappointed with this book! A must have item for tattooists and tattoo enthusiasts alike. Couldn't be happier with this book to be honest, and I have no criticisms at all regarding this product or the service I received. Thanks Very Much

Bought this as a Christmas present for a friend who is an aspiring tattoo artist. She loved it. I know nothing about tattoos and don't have much of an interest in them but the design and photography in this book is beautiful. It is lovely to flick through and looks stunning. What's even better is the picture on the front cover is on the hard cover of the book and the protective sleeve cover, so even if the paper cover gets damaged you still get the picture on the cover of the book instead of just a plain cover.

I bought for a friend based on the positive reviews.
I don't like tattoos myself, but can appreciate the art of them. This large picture book has brief guides to different tattooists with examples of their work.
The lavish photos are mostly of lovely young women, but presented tastefully not porny. The makeup and hair is "alternative".
There should have been an equal number of lovely men imo.
