Julius and Jeff Share Some Ink

Last fall, after a reading at the New School for the launch of The Best American Poetry 2015, I met Julius and Jeff. They were leaning against the stage in Tishman Auditorium and, despite my fervent requests that they do so, they never e-mailed me their details, so all we have is some basic information on their tattoos.

Julius shared this literary tattoo:

The phrase "Darkness falls from the air" is a quote from James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Jeff shared this tattoo:

That is from the 1922 silent film Nosferatu, and he got this at Daredevil Tattoo in Manhattan. He makes horror films and Nosferatu is one of the all-time early classics.

Thanks to Jeff and Julius for sharing their tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
