    1. Didn't exactly "read" it as there's not too much text. A decent intro by graffiti/tattoo artist Mike Giant and a brief interview with Angelique. The images are incredible and the colors pop. I'm a huge fan of her girly, cute-yet-spooky old-timey work. This book is really well done, if a little flimsy for an art/coffeetable book. More like something you'd find on the shelf of a tattoo shop (which is totally appropriate). I really want to check out her first book, "Tattoo Darling", also published [...]

    2. Beautifully printed, this book has lots of Angelique's lovely watercolour paintings, but none of her tattoos. In fact, the only tattoos in this book are the ones visible on Angelique in a series of misplaces pin-up shots. All in all, this book seems to be less about her artwork and more about her brand.

    3. Beautiful artwork by this amazing tattoo artist from Amsterdam. Her art has roots in the oldschool, tradicional way of tattooing, but she gives her own vision to it, and that's what makes her an artist besides tattoing.
