Also, I love idea of a tattoo atlas or map, but in her photographs, she is standing is such weird poses that you can't really see the tattoos she is describing. Last, I just don't understand why such a talented and beautiful woman feels the need to pose in red platform stripper heels and a string bikini.
Kat, the world will still take you and your art seriously with having to dumb yourself down into a stripper, a la "Rock of Love". I enjoyed reading this along with Angelique Houtkamp's Tattoo Darling. Aug 10, Luna Freebird rated it it was amazing. Love this book.
Kat Von D was my hero years ago, when I first decided to be a tattoo artist. She IS heavy metal. Her artwork is so amazing, and she doesn't get the credit she deserves for it. I really enjoyed hearing tattoo stories, though.
Theres so many people out there getting shitty, meaningless tattoos, so its nice to see Kat Von D's amazing memorial p Love this book. I really enjoyed hearing that she's been tattooing since she was a kid, just like me.
Tattooing is something that has been with Kat for a very, very long time and her stories of being in the tattooing industry are awesome!
I've read this book a million thousand times. Mar 27, Esmeralda rated it it was ok. When I picked up this book for the first time I was very much drawn into the allure of tattoos and the whole indie-beauty thing that was and still is? I liked that Kat Von D had enough ink to write a novel on her body.
Kat Von D. High Voltage Tattoo
I ate the book up quickly, very much a poppy kind of picture book with an interesting look into the life of Ms. The pages showing her tattoos, which takes about a few pages to do, are excellently photographed and fun to look at.
I gave this book to my friend not to When I picked up this book for the first time I was very much drawn into the allure of tattoos and the whole indie-beauty thing that was and still is? I gave this book to my friend not too long ago. Looking back at it now, and at KVD, I think she's a bit of a rocker girl drone and somewhat disheveled.
After reading that she got together with the guy that cheated on Sandra Bullock I couldn't help but feel she was a shadier person than the book let on. Ah well, this is a good picture book for what it's worth. May 24, Libscigrl rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is visually beautiful. The pages are nice and big, you get nice images of the tattoos that she or other artists have laid down.
But when it comes to the story and the overall editing of the book, thumbs down. Lots of editing mistakes including spelling. I get that it's supposed to be as if Kat Von D is just bullshitting with you, but things still need to be grammatically correct and spelled right.
I really only finished reading it because the majority of the pages had very little text. I just wanted to see that kick ass tattoos that everyone has. Aug 30, Syrena rated it really liked it Shelves: I picked up this book while I was waiting for Tattoo Chronicles to come in. It was definitely a book all about tattoos and the amazingly talented artists behind them. I loved Kat's tattoo directory 5 centerfold pics from every angle: And she has the old Hollywood starlets!!
Love it!! My daughter was baffled why i was reading a book about tattoos of all things virgin-skin me! And flipped I picked up this book while I was waiting for Tattoo Chronicles to come in.
And flipped to a drawing she did about the same age. My favorite two in this book are: Oct 22, Cami rated it liked it Shelves: A family member checked this book out from the library and I decided to read it before it was turned back in.
While I'd never get a tattoo myself I wouldn't want to be stuck with it permanently , I do find the art interesting and often beautiful. The layout of the book caught my interest as it looks similar to a scrapbook. It's very attractive and the pictures are interesting. It was nice to get a bit more insight into A family member checked this book out from the library and I decided to read it before it was turned back in.
It was nice to get a bit more insight into Kat but somewhat unsatisfying I would have liked to learn more about her, and less about other tattoo artists; I lost interest awhile before the end.
Another thing that bothered me was the editing as I found several spelling and grammatical errors. Sep 08, Leslie rated it really liked it. I started watching Kat on Miami Ink and L. Ink and was amazed by how young and extremely talented she was.
Her book is full of beautiful artwork , from sketches to paintings and of course tattoos. It's filled with stories about her life how she got started and what inspires her to tattoo. Also many of her friends and their tattoos and the stories behind them. I assumed it would be a book filled with just her tattoos, just pictures.
There where so many amazing tattoos like the Guernica by Picasso she did on Steven Hernandez. There was also some creepy ones in my opinion like the one Jeffree Star had of Jonbenet Ramsey. Oct 08, Amy added it Shelves: This is maaaybe a good example of why people who aren't writers shouldn't try to write books.
I really enjoyed the photography, but the writing predictably is pretty sub-par.
And didn't she have an editor? There were some pretty glaring mistakes that put my teeth on edge. And it wasn't even very biographical, which I guess is what I was hoping for - it's more of a quick and dirty look at who's who and what's what in the tattoo world. This is a good one to get out of the library for an This is maaaybe a good example of why people who aren't writers shouldn't try to write books.
This is a good one to get out of the library for an afternoon of diversion, but probably not one to download. It will be interesting to see how her upcoming biography compares.

Apr 12, Megan rated it liked it Shelves: I have a thing for Kat Von D. She's like the female, in my humble opinion, who can pull of a ton of tattoos. I picked up this book knowing it would be a short read and lots of pictures.
I was not disappointed with either assumption. Everything from a bio to Von D's work is included in this one.
KAT VON D – High Voltage Tattoo
The actual book itself is kind of cool, with a squishy cover. A more detailed, in-depth review to come. Once published on my blog, I will link here. Jun 15, Amanda rated it really liked it. This book is beautiful.
This person is all skin and ink. There were these full page diagrams from all angles of her bod, with bullets to all of her tattoos and small descriptions of why she got those ones.
Very anatomy of a junk drawer esque. I also really liked the family and remberance tattoo portraits. A connection I cannot imagine.
A grief I do not know. Someone called this a glorified myspace profile. Keeping the tattoo momentum alive. Go go go sandwiches.
Go go go crush. Jan 30, Alyce Hunt rated it really liked it Shelves: I've always been interested in tattoos, and Kat Von D is practically a household name at this point, so I thought I'd pick this up.
