When you set about getting your skin stained with some permanent art, you better believe you gotta pick the right typeface. “From ampersands to poetry verses, Body Type 2: More Typographic Tattoos presents a spectrum of word and letterform tattoos collected by art director, design critic, and photographer Ina Saltz. Many of the personal stories behind these permanent inscriptions are poignant, surprising, or both; in Body Type 2, Saltz pairs tattoo images with tattoo stories to good effect.”
This dude gets extra points for his geeky graphic design reference.
