In the first step, tattoos are usually transferred to the skin with transfer paper.

Tracing the motif with the pen is a process that triggers a physical memory process.

The hand remembers the lines, travels along all curves, knows the tricky corners.



I have no community.

There is no community

and yet they exist.

Physically growing in my chest

and lives a queer joy.

Queer Joy grows from the

evidence of their existence .

I enroll them.

I'll take them in.

A physical action.

No intellectual readability and

but also no living contact.

"Whoever wears a mask puts on make-up

or tattooed, does not attain with it,

as you might think

another body

only more beautiful, more richly adorned

and easier to recognize.

Tattooing, make-up and masking are undoubtedly something completely different.

This is how the body communicates

with secret powers

and invisible forces."

Michael Foucault:

The heterotopias.

The utopian body

(1966) pp. 31-32



The ask that's really needy,
Above all others is the constitutional claim.
Counter, central, constitutional claim.
Never forget the destitute

and poverty-stricken constitutional claim.

How happy is the beautiful trust!
A trust is enjoyable. a trust is nice
a trust is lovely


The fat, added attractiveness

sings like a self love
An added attractiveness is juicy.

an added attractiveness is paunchy,
an added attractiveness is greasy,


Longing is tattoo.
tattoo is longing.
A long is slick. a longing is tricky
a longing is adroit,


Don't believe that the immediate

interest is shallow?
the immediate interest is deep beyond belief.
Down, down, down into the darkness

of the immediate interest,
Gently it goes - the shallow,

the large, the mysterious.

How happy is the ardent yearning!
A yearning is perfect.

a year is fervid,
a year is passionate

"She can't resist the temptation to ask if it hurts to get a tattoo. Does it hurt more than a broken heart, she wants to ask, but who dares to be that stupid at her age?”

"Last but not least, when I get older, I look forward to reading zeitgeist legacies from >earlier< on my body, like a poetry album or something. For example, I'm already flabby now, we're all getting old, this combination can only get better for me if tattoos are added."  


Hengameh Yaghoobifarah from Erica Fischer: Feminism Revisited (2019) pp. 163-164

When children paint their loved ones, it's not about eternally perfect copies of reality, but about a process of confirmation, of codification, about an accumulation of love - "Here I am and here are mine"
