On the heels of Father's Day yesterday, I just learned that our friend Phil Padwe, creator of
"Mommy Has a Tattoo" and "Daddy Has a Tattoo," has recently posted the entire "Daddy Has A Tattoo" book on YouTube (embedded below).

Phil's children's books, which are wonderfully illustrated, set out to teach, in a light and fun way, tattoo appreciation, and talk about why some moms and dads may look a little more colorful than others. If you've ever been asked by kids why you have drawings on your arms, these books offer some ideas when you want to avoid talking about that drunken night in Thailand.

You can buy "Daddy Has a Tattoo" on Amazon, as well as the "Tattoo Coloring Book." Or just put the kiddies in front of your computer screen and have them watch the story unfold online.

daddy has a tattoo.jpgThere's a great feature in today's NY Daily News on our friend Phil Padwe and his latest children's book, which teaches tattoo acceptance, "Daddy Has a Tattoo."

After the success of his "Mommy Has a Tattoo," many tattooed fathers said, "Hey, what about me?" and so Phil obliged with this new release. As Phil tells the Daily News, the book isn't heavy handed or trying to push a moral lesson, and he's "certainly not preaching that a child should get tattooed!" Instead, it's a lighthearted story with bold and fun illustrations. Here's how it's described:

James is a toddler who loves his daddy's tattoo, and Polly is a little girl who loves parrots! Together they use their imaginations to try to solve a mystery! The story encourages imagination and teaches that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover... not when it comes to tattoos!
You can buy "Daddy Has a Tattoo" on Amazon, but before you do, Phil is giving away two copies to two lucky N+S readers, just as he did with his "Tattoo Coloring Book" this summer.

We'll play it like we usually do:  Two winners will be selected randomly from those who comment -- any love note will do -- on this post in our Needles & Sins Syndicate Group on Facebook or hitting up @NeedlesandSins on Twitter. On December 5th, we'll put all the names of the commenters into will pick the winners.

Good luck!

Our friend Phil Padwe - the talented illustrator who gave us the delightful children's book, Mommy Has A Tattoo - has launched a kickstarter project to help fund his latest work, the follow-up to Tattoo Coloring Book 1.  I'm a big fan of this kind of crowd-sourced funding, so break out your credit card so the rest of us can break out the Crayolas!

(And for a pledge of $25 or more, he'll send you - or your child - a hand drawn card on your birthday!)
