There are many projects in which people are having words, phrases, and passages of books and poems (not to mention representations of literary figures) inscribed on their bodies.

One is The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide, a guide to the emerging subculture of literary tattoos edited by Eva Talmadge and Justin Taylor.

Another is Shelley Jackson’s “Skin,” a story published, one word at a time, on the bodies of 2095 volunteers.
