Since it's inception in 2008, we here at the Best American Poetry blog have cheered on Bill Cohen, one of our favorite bloggers, as he has assembled an array of tattooed poets for his site Tattoosday's annual tribute to National Poetry Month. We are once again thrilled to spread the word to inked poets everywhere. Bill would like to post an image of your tattoo on Tattoosday every day during April. Tattoos need not be literary in nature to qualify. If your ink is featured, Bill hopes to give a little history of your tattoo, some background about you and your poetry, and he'll include links to your own website, books, and poems. With your permission, he'll even post a poem. Last April, Tattoosday recorded over 30,000 hits and nearly 50,000 page views.
In addition, you'd be joining the ranks of ninety poets, several of them BAP contributors, who have participated in years past. You can see who's been cool enough to join the ranks here .
For more details and to express your interest, please contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And since I'm announcing this so close to Valentine's day, I couldn't resist using the photo above. So romantic!
