One of my favorite tattoo themed books are Jay Crownover’s Marked Men Series.
I read the first book, Rule and couldn’t put it down. It was an emotional novel. I felt like the novel reached into my heart and squeezed my chest until I couldn’t take it anymore, but I had to keep on reading. The characters were complex and raw and not stereotypical and I love that about a story.
I also loved the description of some of the ink in her stories:
The piece was a very intricate, very colorful Day of the Dead– inspired grim reaper. The face on the woman was beautiful and tragic and she held on to an exact replica of the heart I had initially drawn on Shaw’s palm all those months ago. Shaw had insisted on two things in the design— she wanted the sacred heart represented and she wanted it to resemble the grim reaper on my side.
