Tattoo - Call for tattoos and stories behind them

Hi everyone!

I hope this is ok to post - hopefully might be of interest to some of the members of this incredible organization. 
My name is Lizzie and I hope you are all doing well during this strange and difficult time. I came across a discussion thread on here about tattoos and thought I'd let you know about a project that may be of interest to some. 
 I'm working with an organisation called The Outsiders Project on a storytelling project called Tattoo. Tattoo’s mission is simple: one photo of a tattoo and one story inspired by that tattoo. 
 Participants (+18) are asked to submit a photo of their tattoo as well as a story which they can either write themselves or have transcribed over the phone. The Tattoo team will fully support the participant through the writing process, offering guidance to suit the approach of that particular storyteller. Once the participant is happy, the story and image would feature on the project website, which you can see here(Contributors of course get final approval on all stories before they are showcased on the project website.)
This project uses tattoos as a window into the lives of people across the globe and as ​a unique opportunity to hear their authentic voices. ​We are excited about Tattoo because we think it offers new creative opportunities for communities during this unprecedented period of isolation.
To find out more about the mission and submission process, please visit
 Those who would like to submit a story or simply find out more are welcome to email me at this address: [email protected].  
Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon.
Best wishes
