Product Description

Product Description

If I asked you to write your desire on my skin, what would you write? What implement would you use? How deep would you etch?

Written on Skin invites readers into the sensory, emotional and psychological landscape of body modification. All body modification is about possession: an act of claiming oneself, or memorializing events or people on skin, or the giving over of power to another. The metaphorical penetration of the body, acknowledged or not, is yet another erotic and often ecstatic element.

Here, for your delectation are fifteen journeys, charting the eroticism of marking the skin, from the intimate bond between a tattoo artist and his client, to the intense experience of radical piercing and branding. Some of the stories are told from the point of view of body as canvas, others are from the point of view of the artists who do the marking. Some of the tales are sweet and romantic, while others skate the edge of erotic horror. There are no limits here: all genders, all sexual orientations. This is the literary celebration of a transgressive act.

Written on Skin presents work by established erotica writers as well as some exciting new voices, including Madeleine Moore, Lisabet Sarai, Val Gryphin, Cèsar Sanchez Zapata, Nan Andrews, Sessha Batto, Aisling Weaver, Roger Leatherwood, Angela Caperton, Tabitha Rayne, Lucie Védrine, Benji Bright, Raziel Moore, and Remittance Girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written on Skin: Disturbing, enlightening, insightful 24 Jun 2014
By Beach Bum Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection unlike others, dealing with a fetish, an obsession, personal statements of beauty, expressions of inner turmoil and terrifying grief. The act itself, the reasons behind it, both for the canvas and the artist, are varied, sensual and often disturbing.
Each story is unique, the presentation bold or subtle, the voices behind the stories mature.
There is sensuality here, the kind that stays with you, like the ink itself. You'll find yourself returning to read and reread.
This is a worthy collection to have on your virtual shelf. Five stars.
