This book was just ok. I think it is a really good teen book. No sex or blow jobs, so it was pretty tame. In fact it was kind of refreshing to read a teen book that was so clean and sweet. I had already bought the sequel so I felt required to read it. I am half way through it and it is much better than the first. The story is really getting good and still quite clean:) ( )

Four high school best friends are cruising the mall one day when they find an unusual kiosk. Bailey buys a packet of temporary tattoos which she shares with her friends. The tattoos lead the way to an action-packed weekend filled with characters from mythology and a quest to save the world.

Bailey is the average, klutzy one but she has a blood tie to the Fates and her gift is fire. She also has visions and hears voices which provide hints about what their mission is. Her friend Annabelle's tattoo lets her read minds and influence others. Fashion maven Delia is given the gift of transformation with her tattoo and athletic, tomboy Zo gets the gift of prophetic visions with hers.

The girls have one weekend to find a way to stop one of the Fates from destroying the seal that keeps the world in balance. I liked the way the girls' different personalities mesh in this story. Delia's use of her power provides comic relief for the heavier elements of the story.

The story is told from Bailey's point of view. She has a great voice and is interested in all the things important to high school girls. ( )

Tattoo is the story of four girls who go shopping at the mall and end up buying temporary tattoos that give each of them unique powers that match their personalities. The girls soon realize that they were given the powers for a reason; evil is coming and they must do whatever they can with their powers to stop it.
I enjoyed this early work of Jennifer Lynn Barnes. The characters in this fun and entertaining story seemed like real high school students who stumbled into something magical. I plan to read the sequel, Fate. ( )

"Tattoo" is a great book that shows the growing friendship between a group of friends who must rely on each other to save the world. The girls in this book gain magical powers when they apply some temporary tattoos, and one of the girls keeps having these dreams about this great evil that wants to take over the world. This book is a story of triumph, courage and bravery. These girls never signed up to be heroes, but they realized if nobody else took on the job then the world would be forever changed. ( )

This was an interesting concept but it didn't feel very well developed. First it moved slowly, and then at the end it was very fast. Good, but confusing. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 038573347X, Paperback)

Bailey Morgan isn't the type of girl who shows a lot of skin, but somehow, she ends up in a dressing room at the mall with her friend Delia applying a temporary tattoo to her lower back. Never one to suffer fashion doubt, trendsetter Delia knows exactly where she wants her own tattoo: on her stomach, right where her shirt ends—can you say "midriff"? Annabelle, the quiet one, chooses the back of her neck, and tomboy Zo plasters hers on the top of her foot. The tattoos will last for three days, and Delia's sure that with them, the four friends will absolutely kill at the school dance.

Unfortunately, killing is just what someone has in mind, and Bailey, Delia, Annabelle, and Zo are in for the battle of their lives. Along with her tattoo, each girl receives a gift—a supernatural power to help them in their fight. As Bailey's increasingly frightening dreams reveal the nature of their enemy, it becomes clear to the girls that it's up to them to save the world. And if they can get Delia to stop using her newfound power to turn gum wrappers into Prada pumps, they might actually stand a chance.
