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 tattoosday@gmail.com for details. And please, everyone, enjoy April on Tattoosday and thank you for visiting!

Jolie's Cupcake

When I met Jolie, we weren't sure which of her thirteen tattoos would be best for the blog, but we decided to go with this one, on the inner part of her biceps:

This colorful cupcake bears the name of Jolie's sister Jackie. The two of them hope to start a cupcake business some day. Jackie has the same tattoo, only with Jolie's name instead.

The artist is Ed Knowles at 12 Tattoos in Groton, Connecticut.

Thanks to Jolie for sharing this colorful tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
