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!

Matty's Christmas Eve Owl

This is an awesome owl that I spotted back in October.

I met Matty outside of Penn Station and he explained that he was travelling through Flagstaff, Arizona a while back and stopped in on Christmas Eve at Burly Fish Tattoo and Body Piercing. He couldn't recall the name of the artist and never e-mailed me the information. Update: Patrick Sans was the artist who tattooed Matty.

Matty wanted a piece that represented "learning over time." He had the idea, told the artist he wanted a traditional owl, and the photo above represents the end result.

Happy Holidays from Tattoosday!
