literary tattoos

  • About the author EB

Attention! If you have a literary tattoo, agent Eva Talmadge and author Justin Taylor (whose Everything Here is the Best Thing Ever will be published by us in winter 2010) want to see it!

“We are seeking high quality photographs of your literary tattoos for an upcoming book. Send us your ink! …

All images must include the name (or pseudonym) of the tattoo bearer, city and state or country, and a transcription of the text itself, along with its source. For portraits or illustrations, please include the name of the author or book on which it’s based. We’d also like to read a few words about the tattoo’s meaning to you — why you chose it, when you first read that poem or book, or how its meaning has evolved over time. How much (or how little) you choose to say about your tattoo is up to you, but a paragraph or two should do the trick.

Please send clear digital images of the highest print quality possible to tattoolit@gmail.com.”
