preserve: The "Skin" Project/Ineradicable Stain

http://ineradicablestain.com/skin.html

Almost two years ago, I requested to take part in an unusual literary project. Writer Shelly Jackson's project called "Skin".

"How unusual?" you ask?

"Skin" is a book. Unlike a traditional book, each word from the book (including punctuation) is written on people in the form of a tattoo. Each person becomes a "word" in the "book" and each word dies with the person upoin whose skin it is written.

I received my word two weeks ago, agter two years wait.

Today, I had the word tattooed on my upper left arm.

For more information about the project, check the link above.

For my "application" see: http://mudhooks.blogspot.com/2006/04/skin-project-i-got-my-word.html

Thanks to George at Iron Legends in Smiths Falls for the work and Glenda for the clicking.
