Hi all-- Medievalists are horrible enablers, did you know that? Today, I was enabled into creating a tumblr blog:

medievalisttattoos.tumblr.com

Okay fine, I volunteered to do it, but the encouragement that came after was, shall we say, strong.

In any case, it's a brand new account, and I need to put stuff in the queue! If you are a medievalist with a tattoo* (or more than one!), please let me know! If you are not a medievalist, but you have a tattoo with a medieval subject, also let me know! I would like to post photos, so take some selfies (or get a friend to help)!

*If you are a medievalist but your ink is not medieval, that's A-OK, we'll still take you ;)

A couple things:

1) Anonymity/Identity: Let me know if it's okay to use your name, or if you'd prefer to use a pseudonym/your twitter handle/be anonymous. (If you are a medieval scholar I'd love to be able to use your name, but being safe on the internet is more important than anything else.)

2) Storytime: Please include any details about your tattoo! Any stories behind it, or your experience getting it. Anything you have to share would be great, and there's no better person to talk about your tattoo besides you.

That's it! I have a couple things in the queue, but I'm still working on getting stories from most people, so there isn't much there yet. But there will be! I've got some amazing ink in the works, you know you wanna see it!
