Romance novels with tattoo themes are popular these days. I love them. Here are my top five tattoo themed books.
- Tattoo Thief by Heidi Joy Tretheway – the male MC has an Ambigram tattoo.
- First Ink by Laura Wright – hot sex scene in a tattoo shop.
- Hard as it Gets by Laura Kaye – military guy turned tattoo artist.
- Rule by Jay Crownover – emotionally charged book.
- Three, Two, One by JA Huss – love the symbolic ink on this cover and it a story about best friends who have matching tatts. I love that.
These stories run the gambit from rock stars and tattoo artists, to unique tattoos that steer the character’s lives. I have a tattoo series in me as well.
Do you like tattoo inspired stories? What is your favorite tattoo themed book?

I wrote a sex scene in a tattoo shop once, but it got cut from the final draft, as did both characters involved!

Not sure I’d call it a favorite, as it was good but harsh, but I read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo a few years ago.
Never ever thought about Tattoo books before… But I am a reader… so i’ll have to check them out.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series is the one I thought of too. There’s a good tattoo revenge scene!
Alex took the words right out of my mouth….sorta. Because I haven’t read many books that are tattoo themed I was going to mention The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, except I only watched the movies…both the original Swedish ones and the American adaptation.
For some reason I’m also thinking of the main character dude in DIVERGENT…doesn’t he have a tattoo as well? Again I only saw the movie, didn’t read the book, and still need to watch INSURGENT while it’s still in theaters.

I love finding out about new sub- and sub-sub-genres 😀 And not even surprised there is a market for tattoo-related romance 🙂
Multicolored Diary – Epics from A to Z
MopDog – 26 Ways to Die in Medieval Hungary
I like fantasy books that have tattoos connected to magic in it. Not so much contemporary.
Inked by Eric Smith. Its YA and its good. Popping by from the A to Z Challenge.
