Marked in Ink: A Tattoo Coloring Book - Megan Massacre

This has some really great designs to color. They are very unique. They, as the title suggests, are tattoo like in design. My favorite is a picture of a skeletal like bride and groom with the words "eternal love." I could see so many of the coloring pictures used as a tattoo design. 

This is of nice quality. It has just a little shy of 40 designs to color. My colored pencils, Prismacolor, work really well on the think paper. I imagine that this would work well with markers, gel pens, or whatever anyone would like to use. The pages are serrated and easily tear from the book for singular display. This also makes it nice so I can xerox a "practice copy" before making final decisions on color choices. The paper is bright white. The cover is gorgeous. The picture really pops and catches your eye. I also feel that I should applaud the use of a matte background for the cover choice. I really didn't imagine that it would ever even matter, but it makes it very easy to hold with no slipping like I get with so many other coloring books I have.
