Share Your Stories (Phase 2)
First there was the survey. Then, you saw us on the Breezeway. Now send us your stories. Phase 2 invites student participation in our project, a creative exploration of the lived experience of being tattooed.
Your story can be about choosing your art or its symbolism, about getting your tattoo, showing it off, hiding it, others reacting to it, and anything else meaningful to you.
It can be in the form of a narrative, a poem, a song, a dialogue or screenplay, or any other creative interpretation. You can include a photograph or drawing of your ink.
Random entries will be awarded prizes.
Be creative! The most promising entries will be chosen to be developed into our film: Stories on the Skin.
All submissions will become part of the Stories on the Skin collection at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts.
