Wait...I just googled "Tattoo Sourcebook" and there's more than one of them...there's some at Walmart and Amazon...some are $10 and some are $35...can you post a link or picture of which one you are talking about?

I actually went on a huge buying spree on Ebay's book site - half.com - my favorite is the Mammoth book of Tattoos by Lal Hardy. Great photos, full color and really nice, compact too. Some others didn't have as nice photography and it is sometimes hard to see when it isn't crisp and pretty. Also, the artists they chose were phenomenal! I also got a few old special effects books which have been really helpful and insightful. I have found since I got all these books I have no trouble being inspired, I sketch more and really come up with unique and crazy ideas. I also like how they layout the designs, after all, theirs are permanent!

I have tattoo soursebook & tattoo johnny & like Johnny better. It's smaller & fits in the top of my kit. But keep an eye on it... I had a guy at a festival try to lift it. He was walking out of my tent & I had to grab his arm, take it back & stick it in the bottom of my kit.

I do pull most of the stuff I do out of my head, but ALOT is definately taken from tattoos, tattoo books (tattoo johnny, Tattoo bible, great book of tattoo designs, tattoo sourcebook), Dover books, textiles, welll.....just everywhere really!! AND the stuff that comes out of my head....let's face it...a bunch is stuff that I've seen that my brain mashes together, so even bits of my 'original' stuff if it's broken down you can probably 'see' the source somewhere!!

LOL, same here. I love looking at fabrics, flowers, photos, animal prints, textiles, etc & using them in designs.

Half.com is usually better than standard ebay, really good shipping too!
