Aye B, See My Tattoos? Coloring Book Two
Aye B, See My Tattoos? Coloring Book Two by Pierre Botardo and Claudia De Pace Botardo
Aye B, See My Tattoos? Coloring Book Two is not your usual kind of coloring book. This book has many different functions. Teaching the alphabet, learning and spelling the word for each illustration, exposing a child’s mind to two languages with translated words from English to Italian and vice versa, and encouraging a child’s imagination and creativity to color each illustration. We have chosen Italian for the second book because Claudia is Italian. And last, these illustrations are tattoo ready for professional tattoo artists. These stencils are ready to go! This coloring book is the second book in a three-part book series by Pierre Botardo and Claudia De Pace Botardo.

"You can tell the authors put kids first in this coloring book. The artwork stays true to traditional style tattooing yet easy enough for my 3 year old to color. Adding the alphabet and both English and Spanish puts it over the top. Can't wait to see the next books come out!"
"Such an awesome cool coloring book!!! It is a very creative way of learning two languages while having fun coloring and painting. Love the dedication page and love the images illustrated. Thinking of getting a couple tattooed!"
"Great concept that is well executed. The fact that each page also doubles as a working tattoo stencil has me dying to get a new tattoo."
"A very good coloring book with lots of amazing illustrations. I purchased one for my daughter. Also doubles as a Spanish learning tool. I cant wait for an Italian or Tagalog version of this! Highly recommended!"
