The connection between tattoo’s and writing for me is all about the sacrifices related to creating something out of nothing and the pain that goes into doing just that. If you are a writer and haven’t experience some pain regarding the process, well, keep going. And, just like a tattoo, yeah it hurts, but when its over, their is this unique and permanent piece of art in the world.
The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum demonstrates the creation of art.
I am super excited to announce they have a new locationOPENING NEW AMSTERDAM TATTOO MUSEUM SHOP: February 28th, 4pm. van Woustraat 78, Amsterdam. BE THERE!!
They are still seeking donations, so if you would like to help, please visit here and here for more information.
Check out The Amsterdam Tattoo on Pinterest and see why this is a special collection and a special place.
Calling all Tattoo’ed Writers
I created Tattoo Tuesday to feature writers who share my love of tattoo’s and want to show off their ink. If you have a tattoo story to share along with some beautiful work and want to be featured, please let me know in the comments. It’s easy, just answer five questions and provide me good photos of your tattoo’s. And, if you have something to promote, this is a good place to do it. Tattoo Tuesday’s are my highest viewed days.
If you have been featured before and have some updated ink, please let me know that, too.

I don’t have any ink, but that’s a great analogy with writing and getting tattooed. The process can cause pain, but the result can be beautiful to behold.
I like it 🙂
Thanks Mark. Like I said, they inspire me and I have to write because I can’t draw.
I have a very simple tattoo, but if your blog has space for me I’d love to show it off 🙂
