Freebies… yay! I am proud to announce an exclusive giveaway competition in association with Bloomsbury, where I will be giving away 5 copies of Pen and Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them (RRP £16.99). Information and how to enter below.
By Isaac Fitzgerald and Wendy MacNaughton, Pen and Ink is a book that grants access to tattoos and the stories behind them. Whether your ink means something, or is the result of a misguided decision at the age of 14, all tattoos are battle scars, beauty marks and mementos.
Tattoo stories from porn stars, rock stars, professors, shop assistants, cafe owners and librarians – each tale is like being let in on the secrets of people who pass you in the street or sit across from you on the train.
Curated and edited by Isaac Fitzgerald and featuring Wendy MacNaughton’s gorgeously rendered full-colour illustrations of the tattoos on black-and-white drawings of the bearer’s body. At its heart, beneath its colourful skin, Pen & Ink is an exploration of the decision to scar one’s self with a symbol and a story.
