Conceptually, I LOVE the idea of this book. Pre-ordering it I had those butterflies in my stomach and couldn't wait to get it. It did NOT disappoint.

For tattoo fans, this book has some nice pictures and more importantly, very interesting stories about tattoos inspired by literature. For you fans of literary works, this will absolutely be thrilling, entertaining and fun to see ... well ... to see the words made flesh.

This is a great book for the hopeless romantic, the tattoo enthusiast, and/or for the literary buff - as well as anyone who enjoys asking the question, or giving the answer to: "nice tattoo, what's it mean to you? why'd you get it?"

If you're on the fence and wondering if you should buy it, let me point 3 things:
(1) For the price, it's an absolute no brainer. Buy it
(2) No matter what the price, it's a no brainer. Buy it.
(3) The reason that you're even considering buying this book is why you should buy this book.

The literary world is vast. People with tattoos are extremely numerous. I was hoping this book would be a plethora of examples of how these two worlds collide. I was disappointed that it was so short and there weren't that many tattoo examples. I bought this as a Kindle book, which was fine for viewing the pictures. I suggest going to a book store and taking 5-10 minutes to go through the whole book and be done with it.

Not quite what I was expecting. The idea was really cool but the photography was just okay and it didn't feel very well put together. I did enjoy reading about why people chose their tattoos.

I loved the idea of this book and the cover really sold me on purchasing this as a gift for a friend's birthday. While I have not read the book in it's entirety, I did flip through each page to see the tattoos. Each page layout is very unique but the quality of tattoos featured didn't really strike me as worthy of print. The visual artistry didn't exactly live up to the ideals behind the tattoo concepts to me but "Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder" I guess.

Extremely interesting, with great professional photos and personal stories. Even includes some brief short stories written by the subjects!
Amarin
This is a neat little book. I didn't find any tattoo inspirations in it, but the pictures are lovely and the stories behind them fun to read. I did find a couple of the tattoos themselves to be quite inspirational, and added the pictures to my vision board. Overall, I am glad I purchased this book.

Being a writer, I loved this concept. Some of the photos could have been better but I'm a literature geek and loved it.
I've always been fascinated by what inspired people to get the tattoos they have. I found the tumblr site this book grew from via pinterest. It combines several of my favorite topics: art, books, and personal stories. Buying this book was a no brainer for me. It didn't disappoint.
