Sofia Drake wants a tattoo – a tattoo all of her own, where her parents won’t see it . And when she’s introduced to Sol Marks, a genius young tattooist, Sofia falls in love with his arty, original designs. But when Sofia’s dad sees his daughter’s new body art his reaction sets in motion a series of events no one could have anticipated. An enticingly original contemporary story of art, love and the power of creativity.
