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!

A Panel's Worth a Thousand Words

A few weeks ago, I ran into Steve in the Trader Joe's on the Upper West Side. He has this striking tattoo on his upper right arm, and he kindly agreed to share it with us:


Steve explained that this tattoo is based on a panel from Love and Rockets, a comic by the Hernandez Brothers. "I just love the art," he told me.

It really is a striking image that really jumped out at me when I saw it. He had this tattooed at En'vie Ink in the East Village.

Thanks to Steve for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
