    I really appreciate good tatto art, this book has that, it also has a great insight into history, technique, and personality of the tattoo culture. If you just want to look at cool pictures or you're looking for the drama of the TV tattoo shows this may not be for you. If on the other hand you enjoy the more cerebral side of tattoing (doesn't that sound like an oxymoron) this book is pretty awesome.
