Literary Tattoos

This is not a post about encouraging tattoos (although anyone who knows me knows that I have no problem with them). It is just a reminder that some body art can be beautiful, especially when it combines ink with passion. In this story here on the Huffington Post, there is a lovely display of these tattoos, and a telling comment. "There are many personal anecdotes shared in "The Word Made Flesh," but not a single tattoo's origin story mentions words first read on a Kindle, iPhone or Nook -- at least none we've seen yet." writes the authors. I think that these tattoos are another way to promote the written word.
