Nikki Sixx has posted a new update from his girlfriend, Kat Von D today.
HIGH VOLTAGE TATTOO – the Book! By Kat Von D Some of you may know I’ve been working on writing my first book for the past year, and I finally got a copy of the final product! It’s so crazy to look through it, and realize that all the hard work has finally become a reality! The book is called, High Voltage Tattoo, and is a window into the world of tattooing through my eyes. I had over a hundred of my clients photographed, and have written personal stories behind each of the tattoos, as well as the Do’s and Don’ts everyone should know about when getting tattooed, Famous Tattoo Myths, an autobiographical section telling you how I got where I am today, How to pick your artist, How to pick your artwork, My Tattooing Playlists, and so much more. In the book, you will also see the tattoos I have done on the likes of Bam Margera, Kerry King of Slayer, My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Anthrax, Alkaline Trio, Eagles of Death Metal, Margaret Cho, Jeffree Star, Jamie Thomas, Steel Panther, Fireball Ministry, Nikki Sixx, as well as some of my never before seen final tattoos on my all time fave clients! I am so beyond excited to show you guys the book, because it was by far the most emotional roller coaster of a project that I put my time, energy, blood, sweat and tears into. XOXO, Kat Von D High Voltage Tattoo, By Kat Von D will be available January 20th in bookstores nationwide, as well as on The Official Book Tour launching January 18th.
You can preorder “High Voltage Tattoo” at this link.

TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider will reprise his role as Captain Howdy in the 1998 cult horror classic “Strangeland” when“Strangeland: Disciple” goes into production later this year.
Snider wrote and co-produced the original film in 1994, pre-dating the cinematic vogue for torture film franchises like “Saw” and “Hostel”. “At the time, I really wanted to re-invent the wheel of horror,” Dee says. “Horror, traditionally, plays on people’s fears of being chased and dying. That’s totally played out. When you’re being chased, there’s the chance of escape. When you die, there’s peace. What’s much worse than being chased and dying is being helpless and suffering.”
“Strangeland” is the story of a schizophrenic sexual sadist who lures victims via the Internet, forcing them to submit to ancient tribal rituals. “I came up with the idea of Internet crime before anybody had ever committed Internet crime,” says Snider. “And if I am the father of torture films, I’ve got to come back like a sledgehammer to reclaim my crown!” To that end, “Strangeland: Disciple” will come complete with an NC-17 rating right out of the box. Obviously, Snider ain’t kidding around.“Strangeland: Disciple” promises to be ultra-intense, taking place in the underworld of body modification fetishists, amid the secret sado-masochistic freak societies of perverted pleasures that lurk just underneath the veneer of respectable society.
“Strangeland” was produced in conjunction with The Shooting Gallery, the studio for “Sling Blade” and “Croupier”. Larry Meistrich, formerly ofThe Shooting Gallery, now operates Nehst Pictures and says, “I am very excited to be back in business with Dee Snider again! ‘Strangeland’was a great experience and I know the sequel is going to be better than the original. In these days of various platforms merging, it is great to be able to work with someone like Dee who is so multi-faceted.”
The 1998 soundtrack included an incredible array of bands — SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SEVENDUST, SOULFLY, SLIPKNOT, KID ROCK, COAL CHAMBER, TWISTED SISTER, MEGADETH, MARILYN MANSON and PANTERA — handpicked by Snider. The success of the soundtrack led to a “Strangeland” tour, which Snider hopes to resurrect once again for“Strangeland: Disciple”, in an effort to grace the contours of his demented vision. “Music was intrinsic to me in the first one. We really tried to create the ultimate heavy soundtrack. Music will be important to me again for the sequel,” adds Snider.
Returning for revenge in the sequel is Robert Englund (“Nightmare On Elm Street”‘s Freddie Krueger), who called “Strangeland” a “bona-fide cult hit.” In the original, he played Jackson Roth, one of Captain Howdy‘s victims.
