    One thought on “Chick Ink: 40 Stories of Tattoos--And the Women Who Wear Them”

    1. After being abysmally disappointed with another book that was supposed to be about other people's tattoo stories, I was pleased to get exactly that with this book (and bonus, they're all about women). It only took me a couple of hours to read all 40 stories; they were very short. I did admittedly skim through a couple of stories that failed to capture my attention or heart. To me, I felt that this book focused a little too much on the "what" (tattoo design, placement, color, size) and not enough [...]

    2. OK, so I only rated this five stars because the editor was kind enough to include one of my essays in the line-up, but it's still a good read, and can give a whole new perspective on body art if you are among the non-modified. I highly recommend reading it, and then telling me how much you liked it! ;)

    3. I loved this book! It was great to read the reasons behind the tattoos of other women and to know that I am not the only one with parents who disapprove. And, as expected, I now have the urge for another tattoo. I know it's inevitable but it just may be a matter of sooner rather than later. I just wish this book had photos of the various tattoos mentioned in the essays; I'd love to see them.

    4. I read this to discover why some women want to decorate themselves in graffiti but still have not discovered the answer. Some like their tats, some have them to commemorate a life event and some got them on a whim. They are described but no photos. A book only for the tat lover.

    5. insightful stories that were fun and touching to read. If you're into tattoo's it a fun read. I've been a tattoo artist for a while and my favorite question is "why". Sometimes it's the story that makes the tattoo.

    6. An interesting collection of essays on tattoo experiences. As in any collection, some essays were better than others, but all were interesting and the variety included shows how vast the spectrum of tattoo enthusiasts really is.

    7. I absolutely loved this book. I'm not inked, I might want to get inked, but I loved reading the reasons behind the tatoos of each woman in this book.

    8. A fun read stories of women and tattoos, why they get them and symbolism behind them. Made me want to go get another :)

    9. Awesome collection. Should have known some of the stories would make me mad. So glad I chose a female tattoo artist.

    10. This was what I wanted all along: a book that gave stories behind tattoos. Interestingly, reading stories didn't make me want one as much as watching L.A. Ink does, but it was still a good read.
