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!

I'd recommend this book for any tattoo fan or even just art fans in general.
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
The book is an edited copy of Kat Von D's journals over the course of a year, detailing some of the tattoos she did and how they affected or distracted her from the events going on in her life. Nikki Sixx is the most frequent topic throughout the book, and it does get a bit samey in places, however the book gives great insight into their relationship and is an overall great read.
The photographs are all taken by Kat herself, and they include items from her personal collections as well as the tattoos she's done.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys biographies, tattoos or who is a fan of Kat Von D.
