Art Feature: Tattoos -- Identity in Indelible Ink by team, journal
Art Feature: Tattoos -- Identity in Indelible Ink
This curated feature is brought to you by @AlexanderPaupoff. The word tattoo has its origins in the Polynesian tatau (or tatu), which means “to puncture or mark the skin.” Tattooing involves inscribing the skin by inserting dyes or pigments under the dermis to form patterns or designs. This ancient practice of body decoration has evolved into a significant form of self-expression. Tattoos are more than just ink on skin—they reflect a person’s identity, beliefs, and experiences. They visually chronicle a journey, represent values and aspirations, and capture victories and tributes, allowing us to use our skin to construct our identities in deeply personal and profound ways. Typically, there’s an idea of permanence attached to tattoos. However, much like people, they’re quite changeable. Throughout our lives, tattoos transform in appearance and intensity, the same way we do as we age. They might be voluntarily changed, extended, covered up, or removed, and when we die, they

Wild Soul by Lorian-AinDal, literature
The dark forest closes over me, chill air filling my senses with a scent of pines and glamourous mystery. I know how mystery feels. It's the scent of darkness, enchanted and tempting, for all who embrace the night. For all who are not afraid to tread the unatended paths. I dwell deeper into woody nightshade, my eyes gleaming in the shadows. My memories swirl, ravenous and mourning. You told me that woods were you sacred home. That your soul yearned for nature, it called you, with a silent but urgent voice. For me, every tree has your name engraved on the bark, every bough whispers your name. You were a wild creature, a spark of fire in the darkness. A wolf soul, who in his mind doesn't know boundaries set by this unforgiving world. I see you in these woods, free, untamed, a soul that never was chained by painful reality. A spirit who was tempted by mystery and allure of the night. A heart which was beating for the wilds, which resonated with mine on mystical level - a winter fae
