Staff Review: "Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them" by Isaac Fitzgerald


People have been tattooing their bodies for thousands of years. Some tattoos are thought about for years and others are spur of the moment decisions. I have always been fascinated by the stories behind the art and so this book was a perfect find. Each tattoo is artistically recreated and accompanied by the person's story. Some stories are funny, others emotional, but all are as unique as the individual and their tattoo. Whether you have ink, are contemplating it, or just appreciate the art, I highly recommend checking out this book.
