Skin by Shelley Jackson


Writer Shelley Jackson has invited participants to have one word (in classic book font) tattooed anywhere on their bodies. That word will be from the story titled Skin, and the full text of the story will never be published. It's up to the participants to find each-other and compile the story, if they're so interested. Less than 2 months after putting out the call for participants, nearly 1800 have already signed up. The piece has 2,095 words. The above image is from the first tattooing– the title. Skin.
