Anthony “Ant” Young is a 21-year-old artist earning his tattooing apprenticeship under Hank the Tank, a founding member of the powerful Lucifer’s Choice motorcycle gang. Though Ant was fleeing violence when he left his home, his new circumstances and mentor expose him to a vicious and frightening criminal underworld in Victoria, British Columbia. A cynical antihero, Ant’s audacity is only matched by his vulnerability. With bursts of intensity, this unforgettable and darkly funny novel takes on addiction, desire, and remorse. As Ant’s life stumbles out of control, he struggles to hold on to the one thing he really cares about.

Review:

“Fearless, the straight stuff! An arresting look at the world of tattoo; graphic as a freshly embroidered skull on virgin skin. Via the morally ambiguous point of view of an eager young apprentice, Prick is an entree to a world not often seen and even less understood. With wistful shades of Willie Vlautin and al the grit of Charles Bukowski, Ashley Little lushly demonstrates that hers in an important new voice in unflinchingly real storytelling.”  —Dennis E. Bolen, author of Kaspoit!
