Readers with Tattoos Inspired by Black Ocean Books Rewarded with Lifetime Subscription

Publisher Black Ocean has made an unconventional offer to its most unconventional fans–if you get a tattoo inspired by one of the press’ books, you will receive a lifetime subscription to its titles.

Here’s the deal: “If you’d like to get a tattoo inspired by a Black Ocean title, you too can receive a lifetime subscription and become a Black Oceanographer for life! Just send us a picture of you getting your tattoo (so we know it’s not simply a magic marker), or find one of us in person and expose yourself to us (with fair warning).”

Three readers have already received lifetime subscriptions for tattoos,  including Rebecca H.’s tattoo inspired by “The Center of Worthwhile Things” from The Man Suit (pictured, via). UPDATE: Earlier this year, we found out that Kurt Vonnegut, e.e. cummings, and Shel Silverstein are the most popular literary tattoo inspirations.
