The synthesis of text and photo is a brilliant format for storytelling. This series is a wonderful collection of works and stories, fitting in with Fulbeck's greater body of work dealing with subcultures and perception. Lots of interesting and recognizable people inside with some beautiful, body art.

Just recieved this book yesterday. I thought it would be a bit bigger, but this is only 7 x 7. It is a very unique book with great personal stories. I myself have roughly around 20 tattoos, I lost count to be honest. But as we all know there is a story behind each piece we get. I laughed, smiled and was saddened by some stories. It sits on my coffee table and I am sure friends and family will also enjoy this book.

Love this book. Saw it in a Dutch shop (in the Netherlands obviously), but it was way cheaper to get it trough Amazon! It's great fun to read and watch. It's not about the most beautiful tattoos, but it's about the stories behind it. The photos are well taken and the stories are written in different fonts. It's also a great gift!

I love Kip Fulbeck's other book and definitely wasn't disappointed by this one!
The portraits are great and there is a wide variety of tattoo themes and styles and people represented.
The notes on the side are very interesting.
I'm very happy I got this book =]
