    I was also very disappointed in this book. I was so excited to receive it in the mail, I actually bought 2 copies, one for me and one for my best friend for Christmas, both of us fully tattooed and knowledgeable about the tattoo industry.

    I was hoping to get that raw and intense look into the whys and how’s of the clients coming in with their work. It was a drag to see Bam Margara, Nikki Sixx and other celebrities through out the whole book. It was more of a love story about her and Nikki then entries about the art and everyday people; yet the everyday people she did choose were ones we had already seen and heard from the show…. The plastic surgery girl who had the woman with 2 different faces (if anyone remembers that episode) POOR CHOICE when it comes to promoting strong female power!

    Then it clicked…. This book launched the SAME DAY as they show the second to last episode of the season of LA INK exposing her breakup to Nikki Sixx… What a fabulous way to get everyone to buy this book!! For someone who feels so isolated because of the celebrity status, she has gone full blown sell out and I bought into the hype. I feel cheated.

    I still think Kat Von D is extremely talented and an amazing artist, especially for her age, but she needs to put down the pen, let go of the inner author (at least keep it to yourself) and pick up the tattoo gun a little more for the common folk. (ie: not charging $500 an hour just because you are who you are… Once we forget where we come from, we loose all sense of who we are supposed to be, Kat)

    I am returning the second copy…My best friend would probably stop being my friend if I gave her such a thoughtless gift.

    Although I enjoyed the book, I have to admit that it wasn’t what I thought it would be. What I was expecting and looking forward to reading was diary entries about her everyday customers, their tattoos, and the interesting stories behind them. Instead I read more about her relationship with Nikki Sixx than anything else, and for the most part, the stories of her everyday customers didn’t go into as much detail as I would’ve liked. I did however, enjoy the photography and the stories that she did go into detail with. No matter how I or anybody else feels about Kat’s personality, ego, or whatever else, I can’t deny her talent as a tattoo artist.
