An illustrated diary offering 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 entries--some poignant, some hilarious, some confessional--Kat lays it on the line about how doing these tattoos influences her life and art, including her feelings about her fame, family, love life, friends, and fans. This graphically compelling diary is full of Kat's images, from sketches to the finished works, and candid shots of her unusual personal collections.--From publisher description.

This book is really good. If your a fan of tattoos art music anything and everything you will definitely like this book. I find her newest one is better, but still a great read...

not just a tattoo book, the art is amazing .... unbelievable talent! her journal entries are interesting, but some of the reading I skipped, just to look at the art... the art/images are that good.

Reads just like you would imagine her life to be : chaotic, interesting, personal, full of images, and background about her life. If you've seen her on tv, then this is a more personal insight but still just as full-on as LA Ink.
