As two jealous lovers vie for Joely's attention, she must confront her shadow self, a black leather virago with a taste for blood. Can Joely possibly survive her own darker self?

“Lyrical, forlorn, dreamlike, and, at times, painfully passionate … Tattoo is essentially deeply philosophical and poetic contemplation cloaked in visionary science fiction and folklore-powered fantasy.” Paul Goat Allen, Unabashedly Bookish, BN.com
"Tattoo revels in the lushly erotic while remaining aware of the costs of addiction and self indulgence.”
“The fact that there are addictive aphrodisiacal tattoos in the story is just a kinky bonus.” Diane Anderson-Minshall, The Advocate
