Theorizing Body Inscription Across Disciplines and Cultures
By Erik Larsen and James Martell

The essays collected in Tattooed Bodies draw on several disciplines, including philosophy, media studies, anthropology, and literary studies, to explore how tattoos express our shifting attitudes toward these relationships.
