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.
