I’ve never considered a tattoo before this…

Written By: Gary on June 14, 2005 3 Comments

Writer Shelley Jackson invites participants in a new work entitled “Skin.” Each participant must agree to have one word of the story tattooed upon his or her body. The text will be published nowhere else, and the author will not permit it to be summarized, quoted, described, set to music, or adapted for film, theater, television or any other medium.

More information can be found at the skin project site. It’s a really interesting background to the project (it’s only one page) so check it out. One big rule, if your word is a body part, you’re not allowed to get it on that body part. Makes me wonder about the story itself….

It’s actually one of those odd things mulling around in my head. I’d like to get a good word like “genius” or “universe”, it’s a lot more appealing that getting something like “dork” or “limp”.

Found at Blades of Grass.

    Or what would really suck is a tattoo of “and” or “the” or “or”….

    One warning: once you get one tattoo, you’ll want more….:-) The only reason why I do not have more than one tattoo is I had an allergic reaction to the pigment (my tattoo is of opus the penguin) and I’m a little gun shy about trying it again.

    Count me OUT! Is it just a coincidence that on the left side of this page, there are ads for tatoo removal?

    Thanks to Gary for this intriguing link: “Skin: A Mortal Work of Art.”

    I’ve already sent my email to volunteer to be a word. I want it BAD. Not that I’ll get it, mind you, since there are about 5000 people trying to get the remaining 315 or so words…
