So much <3.

Director Dave Adams of Run Riot Films has made a beautiful book trailer for Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them! We are so excited with how this video turned out, and would love if you took the time to share it (thaaaank you)!

Pen & Ink hits stores in exactly two weeks. Any and all pre-orders (which you can place here, here, here, or here) would greatly help us in launching the book. We really can’t overstate how much every single pre-order helps. We’ve been working so hard to get to this moment, and are incredibly grateful to you for championing Pen & Ink to the finish line.

Thank you all so, so much.

With bursting hearts,

-Isaac & Wendy

Today on Cool Stuff in the Mail: Pen & Ink (Oct. 7) tells the stories behind famous and ordinary people’s tattoos. Here are some highlights:

  • Writer Roxane Gay on her arm tattoos: “I hardly remember not hating my body. I got most of my seven arm tattoos when I was nineteen. I wanted to be able to look at my body and see something I didn’t loathe, that was part of my body by my choosing entirely. Really, that’s all I ever wanted.” (Side note: Did you hear her Weekend Edition interview?)
  • Master’s degree student Kriste York on her map tattoo: “I marked my 40th birthday with this tattoo, thus becoming a human RV. Once a year I’ll fill in the states I’ve visited since my last birthday, with the goal of coloring them all in before I turn fifty in 2023. I live in Oregon and the words in the banner are our state motto: ‘She flies with her own wings.’”
  • Copywriter Christine Hostetler on her bee tattoo: “When we were little, my sister and I would race after bees in the lavender bushes and try to pet them without getting stung. [Ed. Note: !?!?!?!] We were in awe of their tiny stingers that could bring a grown man down.”
  • Writer Chris Colin on his bunny tattoo: “I got this tattoo because I suspected one day I would think it would be stupid. I wanted to mark time, or mark the me that thought it was a good idea.”
