It was Amy Beckerman's peony above her right ankle that first caught my attention:
This beautiful floral tattoo, designed by Dan Bythewood at Regeneration Tattoo in Alston, MA, is one of four tattoos she has.
Dan is a friend of Amy's from college who had studied art then went on to become a tattoo artist.
I thought this one was wonderful, as well:
The word "laughter" pefectly suits her, as Amy is a professional comic. This was also inked at Regeneration, but by Cathy Johnson.
You can see a segment of Amy performing below, as one of her characters, "Ida Felter":
Amy performs regularly in a show called "Dykes on Mics," the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at Comix (353 West 14th Street in Manhattan). It's a free show, starting at 9:00 PM. The next performance is Tuesday, September 28.
Amy's website is here.
Thanks to Amy for her enthusiastic participation in Tattoosday!
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!
