I have a food tattoo.  Not surprised, are you?  It wasn’t meant to be a food tattoo.  I spent a week in NYC while in the area for my grad school interviews.  So, I went to the Big Apple and decided the perfect souvenir would be to come home with a little apple.  Ridiculous, I know.  I’ve thought about expanding on the food theme, but I’d rather spend my money on food than tattoos, ha.  Plus, I’m a wimp when it comes to pain.  This next Call is interested on what’s on the body, not just tattoos.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from Gallery 263 (Cambridge, MA) for the On the Body. The entry fee is only $25, and the space is beautiful. Investigate this space…
