Overview

Renowned tattoo artist, author of New York Times bestsellers High Voltage Tattoos and The Tattoo Chronicles, and star of LA Ink, Kat Von D raises the bar with her most intimate work yet: Go Big or Go Home: Taking Risks in Life, Love, and Tattooing.

Kat has always been a risk-taker in her day-to-day life, her creative work, and in love. In Go Big or Go Home, she writes candidly about her greatest desires, fears, successes and failures, and shares how she has dealt with them. In seven thematic essays, Kat addresses issues close to her heart—such as individuality, independence, and altruism—and draws upon her own experiences and those of her many clients.

Filled with Kat's sketches, handwriting, drawings of tattoos, and process photos, as well as specially commissioned photographs of the finished large-scale tattoos by celebrity and fashion photographer Patrick Hoelck, Go Big or Go Home covers a wide range of her astounding work on regular citizens, as well as the many celebrities who seek her out her artistry.

I think its great that kat opens up and shares the musings of an artist and shares her work I find it disgusting people say horrible things about her she is a successful tattooed woman and there is nothing wrong with that. I found this book to be as good as her last and I look forward to more

I enjoy Kat Von D's artistry and her television show, however this book is poorly written and boring. The artwork in the book is great but that is about all the excitement this book has to offer. Skip.

This book was absolutely horrid. I read the paper back one and it made me want to puke. The part where she describes her SM experiance is just disgusting. She shoves some weird thijgs in places i haven't even heard of. She is going to hell.
