Be Our Tattooed Guest: Jody Casella + A Footprint


Welcome to Be Our Tattooed Guest, an original feature here on Beauty and the Bookshelf! This feature is all about tattoos of the literary, poetic, and bookish variety, and people showing them off! To learn more about Be Our Tattooed Guest, please go here.

Today's tattooed guest doesn't just have a bookish tattoo--she writes books! Maybe you've heard of her? Or read Thin Space?


Jody Casella

Artist: Jim @ Club Tattoo on Pier 39 in San Francisco, CA.

DesignA bare footprint.

Story: I was on Simon Teen's Summer Lovin Tour 2014 in California with fellow YA authors Suzanne Young, Sarah Ockler, and C.J.Flood. C.J. had jokingly suggested that we get tattoos as sort of a bonding thing to celebrate our tour. The idea kept needling around in my head. I have no tattoos and I am pretty much the last person anyone would expect to get one. The main character in my book Thin Space walks everywhere barefoot and it hit me that a bare foot on my foot would make an awesome tattoo. I slipped away from the group when were in San Francisco...
