Tell Me a Tattoo Story by Alison McGhee; illustrated by Eliza Wheeler. 2016. India ink with dippers and watercolors

Brief Summary: A little boy asks his father to tell him stories about the tattoos. The dad explains the life events that occurred that inspired him to get each tattoo.  The last one is a small heart with his boy’s birthday.

Comment: I can imagine parents stopping and talking about their own tattoos after reading this book to their child.   I bought this one for my school library because there really are not too many tattoo books at an elementary level. I think it will go out a lot because of the subject manner.
