Welcome to another installment of the Tattooed Poets Project!
This will be our sixth April celebrating National Poetry Month with a month full of tattooed poets’ work – both written and corporeal. Every day this month at 3:00 AM EDT, we will post a tattoo (or two) belonging to a poet, along with a sample of their work. Because interest has been unprecedented this
year, most days we will post TWO poets, with the second one appearing at 3:00 PM EDT. If you are a published poet interested in contributing, we will be featuring additional tattooed poets weekly, starting in May, or you can volunteer now for 2015. Please email email@example.com for details. And please, everyone, enjoy April on Tattoosday and thank you for visiting!

Bridget loves ladybugs. They represent luck because, whenever bad things are happening, she will inevitably see a ladybug, and she is convinced they help her luck turn around.
She went to her tattoo artist, Stacey Sharp at Ink Alternative Studio in Ronkonkoma, New York, and told her she wanted a piece with ladybugs and stars. Stacey put together this piece with the negative space utilizing her skin tone. The effect is a pretty cool tattoo.
Bridget also has a back piece which she couldn't show me, but hopefully she will send me a photo for a later post.
A tattoo from Ink Alternative appeared here last October here.
Thanks again to Bridget for sharing her ladybug ink here at Tattoosday!
Update July 27, 2009: Stacey now tattoos out of Inkpulsive Custom Tattoos.
