Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Just because many states forbid the tattooing of people under age 18 doesn't mean students don't have a keen interest in the subject. Whether for a research paper or for personal information, this series presents a good overview of the art of tattooing, touching also on other forms of body modification such as piercings. Tattoo Art around the World discusses how different cultures have used tattoos, ranging widely in place and time from a Siberian mummy, to the Tahitians found by Captain Cook, to people in the present day. The design and the reading level are accessible without talking down to the audience, so this is a good choice for enticing reluctant readers with an interest in body art.--Dove Lempke, Susan Copyright 2010 Booklist"
