Not worth it.
Although some of the information written in this book would be helpful to a beginning tattoo collector, like some history and description of meaning. As far as image reference goes, authentic style and representation is totally absent. Just digital cookie cutter images made in PS or something like it. I expected hand drawn, painted or tattooed images. Just another book making money off the coattails of our industry and culture. I would like to return it.
