Review of Marked in Ink a Tattoo Coloring Book by Megan Massacre

9780399578779

 

Marked in Ink is a tattoo coloring book made by tattoo artist Megan Massacre. She used to be on NY Ink on the TLC channel and I’m a fan of her work, so I was quick to request this one when I saw it was available on Blogging For Books. There is one picture per page, so you can color them with a variety of coloring mediums. I enjoyed using markers, colored pencils, colored pensĀ and gel pens. They’re not really made for crayons because the lines are too small.

Megan starts off the book with a nice introduction and there are 30 or so pictures to color. They are designed like pieces of flash art. Lots of them are sugar skulls with owls, fairies, mermaids, ships and other things mixed in, including the cover photo. I would recommend this to any fan of Megan’s or to fans of tattoo style in general.

What Are You Reading?

Hi, everyone! What are you reading? I’m currently reading Rebels Like Us by Liz Reinhardt (I won it off of Goodreads. Yay!) and Shut Up and Give Me the Mic by Dee Snider (I found that one at the Dollar Tree.)

I’m currently 6 books behind on my 50 book challenge, but hopefully I’ll get caught up soon. I need to stick to reading 30 minutes a day. That never used to be an issue for me, but lately I’ve been so consumed with work, eBay and health issues that I’ve slacked. I’ve been neglecting my Kindle for my Kindle Fire, which only has about 12 books on it too. Fail! Does anyone else ever get into a reading slump? What do you do to get out of it?
