Hear about my tattoo...

Found these on Visual Daily.  I am fascinated by tattoos. I don't have one and no desire to either - am too chicken and can't think what I'd have put where - but I always wonder what the story is behind the decision to have one and where it goes on the body.  I read a crazy statistic somewhere that something like 1 in 3 of us in the UK now has a tattoo.  Isaac and Wendy's blog, Pen & Ink, documents these decisions with these wonderful diagrammatic sketches. The handwritten copy which accompanies each drawing adds a charming personal touch; you can almost hear the voice of the person talking about their tattoo.  Looks like this project hasn't been going on for long so hope to see more posts and if you fancy seeing your tattoo and story described in this way, get in touch with them:
