The Word Made Flesh
The start to my literary tattoo sleeve. The bird is from The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. The typewriter is my grandfather’s old Corona. The trout (only one is pictured) are for Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan. Since this photo I have added a peacock head on the inside of my arm for Flannery O’Connor who kept peacocks on her estate. Many of her books contain peacocks in the cover art. I have also begun to fill in gaps using an antique floral design reminiscent of the one mentioned in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. So many other literary tattoo ideas in the works!

    Flannery O’Connor went to my school and is buried at a cemetary nearby. This is the coolest thing!
