The book is beautiful and so is KAT, this is a must have for any true fan. Don't listen to all those haters out there - misery loves company. This book was informative and the stories she shares may even bring a tear to your eye.

I enjoyed reading the book and learning about what makes Kat tick. What struck me is the impression one person can make on another. Through the experience of Kat's art, she takes time to see into the soul and then takes the time and energy to write it down -- enough so to make it become part of her. I was humbled by that thought.

NOT FOR NOOK HD (no PagePerfect, i.e. graphically enhanced, books are).   They don't tell you this when you purchase a NOOK HD - which is the updated version of the Nook Color. The newest reader gets fewer compatible books, and none with enhanced graphics!  Nice.

This book was very inspirational. Every story started with a tattoo and went on to connect with Kat's life. She is very personal in her writing and shared a lot about herself, in which, shocked me. One message I found in this book was how she used her issues and addictions to inspire and help others that could be going through the same thing. She showed that anyone can be inspirational in anyway. I really enjoyed this book and liked how personal it was. She did not just talk about tattoos and her job but she shared her life stories, which can be a very difficult thing to do. Although, I didn't like how much she talked about her relationship with Nikki. I felt she could have toned that down a bit more. One of my favorite things about the book was all the pictures. It really helped give the right image for the stories. This book is highly recommended for I really did enjoy it. McKayla M.
