    Hey Guys,

    If you have tattoos or even if you don't have any and just find them intriguing, you may be interested in our project on tattoo culture and our interesting perspective of tattooed people as walking books. The project has been ongoing at Florida Atlantic University for two years now, and it's culminating in a documentary that we've been filming this past year. I've seen the previews, and it's really well done. We're looking for a little help to finish the last bit of filming and editing, and we're doing it through a Kickstarter campaign where you get rewarded for helping out our project:

    Please consider helping out!

    Thanks,
    B R I X

    Looks like it's going to be good. Hope that it helps bring tattoos back to being an expression of the soul instead of a drunken tacky mistake that a lot of people are making them out to be these days.

    That's exactly the point, jsowneon. What we found is that most people who have tattoos have wonderful and touching stories that go along with the imagery on their skin.

    In fact, it would be great if this forum discussion evolved into an exchange of the stories on the skin of the guys here. I myself am an uninked guy... but how about the rest of you who are inked: Do you have stories to share about what your tattoos say? Are you a walking book?

    Don't forget, too, that we need your support to finish our film!
