Pen & Ink Seeking Submissions for Book


If a picture’s worth a thousand words, a tattoo might be worth a book.

If that sounds like the kind of book you’d like to read, good news: Pen & Ink, the blog about tattoos and the stories behind them by Rumpus compadres Isaac Fitzgerald and Wendy MacNaughton, is jumping from web pages to paper ones.

The best part: they want you to hear about your ink. Send a photo of your tattoo along with its origin story to [email protected] by June 24th for a chance to be a part of the project!
