Synopsis: Within the pages of "Knives and Needles: Tattoo Artists in the Kitchen" by the team of Molly a. Kitamura and John Agcaoili, tattoo artists from around the United States invite the reader into their personal kitchens in a unique and intimate cookbook comprised of their favorite home recipes.

The recipes are easy to follow and range from guacamole and margaritas to guava-glazed ribs, from mom's quesadillas de Oaxaca to vegan churros, and from grandma's baked apples to Freddy Corbin's apple pipe.

"Knives and Needles" impressively celebrates the intersection of food and tattoo culture and the beauty that comes from skill transforming into art, whether it is through ink or the plate. Full-color photos of the various artist cooks own tattoos showcase their work in vivid detail.

Critique: An inherently fascinating and unique culinary compendium, "Knives and Needles: Tattoo Artists in the Kitchen" is a singularly and especially recommended addition to personal and community library cookbook collections.
