I’ve never had a desire for tattoos, but looking at photos of textual tattoos I can at least imagine wanting a tattoo. Not that I know what I’d write. While I love Shelley Jackson’s Skin project, I’d definitely want to choose my own words, were I to have any indelibly inscribed on my body. Which would be an extremely unlikely event.
(Fruits of a five minute break for surfing. I’m leaving the office soon. Dinner with friends, good idea, don’t you think?)

From afar: I vote no on your tattoo.
poet nikki giovanni has “thug life” tattooed on her left forearm. (a bit of trivia i’ve always been meaning to use somewhere! – grin)
