Group Description

Inspired by the book Body Type and tattoos of that nature, this group is to share photos of tattoos with words or letters, with a particular emphasis on tattoos written in type (as apposed to a handwritten style). Any language is acceptable, though please do keep generic Chinese character tattoos at a minimum.

TATTOOS ONLY! If you are interested in photos of words done via marker or henna, etc., see the group Words on Skin.

- Tattoo must have a HEAVY EMPHASIS on text. Do not submit tattoos that have a small amount of text below a large piece of artwork. The text should be the central focus.
- Do not submit a Chinese character unless you're convinced that it is absolutely different from all the rest, in which case you're probably wrong, but go ahead and try us.

Group Rules

To join this group, your photo MUST NOT be any of the following:

- Regular ink drawings
- Generic Chinese characters
- Lettering that comprises only a small percentage of a tattoo (that is, a big picture of your mom with "MOM" underneath does not count as body type).

We're looking for examples of TEXT-ONLY tattoos, or at least tattoos with a HEAVY EMPHASIS ON TEXT! Please do not join if you plan to add anything else.

Thank you.
