written in ink...

Posted on | 20 April 2010 | 7 Comments

having spent the weekend at coachella, i saw quite a few creative tattoos, and while i never did before, i'm starting to understand the reasoning behind it. if i ever did, i think it would be typography-related; i could stare at a well-designed type face all day.

    I haven't been able to get that tattoo (bottom left) out of my head since I saw it on Cup of Jo. Betsy Dunlap's calligraphy is divine. I think I would definitely go down that route.

    Yeah, same here. The commitment seems a bit scary, but love these ones.

    bottom left-hand corner is Tony's friend/co-worker, Francis! Lucy and Orla are his twin daughterrs... I fell in love with that one, too!

    Lex - No way! Such a small world. Think that one's my favorite. The script is perfection.
