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!

Jon's Molten Flesh Tear

Well, we seem to be taking care of a lot of our orphan posts earlier in the month than later, as I expected. Our next piece is from Jon, who I met in Herald Square back in June. He was visiting New York from England, and his travelling companion, Marjo, shared her tattoo with us back in July here.

Jon let me snap a photo of his leg, which is a take on one of those torn flesh motifs:

Note you can see Marjo in the background, rocking a pretty cool leg piece.

I don't have much more to say about Jon's tattoo, which I dubbed "Molten Flesh Tear," other than he credited to an artist named Mick J at Blue Dragon Tattoo in Brighton, England. I did find the following reference pictures on Mick J's MySpace page:

Thanks to Jon for sharing with us here on Tattoosday!
