Shelley Jackson’s ‘Skin’ is no doubt the most thrilling literary project ever. The 2,000-plus tattoo enthusiasts will volunteer the project by inking words of a short story, one word at a time. Blending the text with the reader permanently may seem a crazy idea, but it’s the truth.
Be a part of this dramatic act of literary tattooing and get the word matching your desire inked on your body. The original text will not be published anywhere else. The full text will only be disclosed to the participants. I’ll call it extreme madness. What’s the aim of this inartistic and non-literary project? To gain publicity or to satisfy ones own uncanny motifs? Who would like to invite the moving tat-words to read the whole story?
