    "This might be okay. I don't think I would pay this much for this book though. Not when you can find so much for free on the internet. Looks pretty though."

    "He's a great artist but it seems like he is selective about what he posts. Sometimes he doesn't post for weeks. Maybe he is only posting his best work and the rest is awful. Consistency is important in a tattoo artist and posting more pictures will make people more comfortable that ALL his work is good."
