Sticky Pokes

Added on by Lisa Max.

Yesterday Perth based artist and writer Anna Dunnill (of Paper Mountain and Aunty Mabel's Zine Distro) spontaneously gave me a small tattoo of a pencil on my arm.

If you have ever wondered what a fresh stick 'n' poke tattoo looks like, here's a macro image of Anna's work. You can see the individual dots, and the ink stains around them. I am not sure whether the piece will need touching up, so far I am enjoying the dotted nature of the lines and might keep it as it is, if Anna is happy with that decision.
