In Praise Of Body Art

As a writer, I like elaborate body art that expresses a persona of narrative. I always expect some kind of story implied in each figure and text exposed, however skillfully or crudely conceptualized or etched. And I suspect a different layer of meaning in the unseen art. In this world of commercially duplicative and often culturally sterile fashions, uniqueness is less possible unless maybe you design your own apparel and accessories. Tattoos are among the media most apt to unique visual narratives.
