This history may not be true, but it sure does look great, and it's a hell of a lot more fun than what actually transpired.
--The AV Club

Outrageous! Exquisitely executed filth...
--Emma Thompson

A gonzo view of tats through the ages: mostly British, frequently profane, replete with extravagantly inked caricatures.
--Kirkus Reviews

The vibrant, full-color palette and drawing style frequently invoke old-school flesh art, and the author's cartoonist background shines in the scathing caricatures of Western history's most beloved and reviled figures. This picture book for grownups will please those who appreciate a heavy dose of mocking sarcasm with their social and political commentary.

It's an absurd, silly, slightly profane trip that fuses highbrow and lowbrow humor with Monty Python-esque glee.
--Shelf Awareness

No tattoo parlour should be without a copy - it's just the thing to take your mind off the pain.
--The Telegraph
