Fading into fame
Unfortunately Ruth’s neck tattoo is starting to fade. It says farashah (butterfly in Arabic) and just as it fades it’s attracting some attention. Jon who works for these publishers emailed me asking for permission to use the white Arabic tattoo for a book he’s putting together called ‘Arabic Tattoos: Documenting the Cultural Skin Behind the Ink.’ We’re so pleased – we may even get a free copy of the book! And Mark Batty publishes some great stuff, too. Other images of the tattoo are here, here and here.
