Kat Von D's follow up to her New York Times bestseller High Voltage Tattoo offers a more intimate look at a year in the personal and professional life of the charismatic LA Ink star through an illustrated diary that begins in late 2008 and ends in late 2009, documenting a pivotal twelve months in her life.
When Kat does a tattoo, she writes about it and draws sketches in a journal, creating an entry for each piece. She has hundreds of ledgers of these entries in her own writing-the entries reflect not only the significance of the tattoo for the person who is receiving it (their story), but also chronicles the artistic process of designing it. The added bonus, which will appeal enormously to her fans, is that these entries openly reveal in intimate detail what is going on in Kat's life at the time. Kat has personally culled from the most telling and meaningful entries for this book-the highs and lows, and the good, bad, and the ugly! It's a book about love in many ways, as Kat reveals not only personal emotional struggles, but reveals her feelings about her fame, her family, her boyfriend (Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue), her friends, and fans.
On the visual side, the book includes more of gorgeous shots of Kat, memorabilia, sketches, and, of course, tons of examples of her amazing tattoo work. Once again, there are photographs of the people with their finished tattoos, and the tattoos themselves. As a bonus, the book also includes numerous photographs that Kat has taken especially for it.
This diary reveals the real Kat Von D. It's Kat unscripted and uncensored - and her fans are going to love going along for the ride on this candid journey.
