I enjoyed the book, bought it for my apprentice who liked it. Tips on very basic beginner tattooing, good for a new apprentice. Cleanliness is covered, hand washing, some products used are shown with information on the company. If you like skulls, are starting out in a street type tattoo shop, I reccomend it for you. My apprentice found the information inside very helpful and useful. Easy to read and understand for the beginning tattooer\/apprentice at a shop.
