    Calligraphic improvisations with a broad-nib marker over skin by Gabriel Martínez Meave
  • A broad-nib indelible marker can create convincingly-looking lettering and calligraphy over skin. It even can last a few days, giving the appearance of a tatoo. Gothic styles are especially suitable for this kind of improvisational, recreational calligraphy. Some were made over the calligrapher’s own skin.  All images here are from diverse events, shows, lectures and conferences; candid photos from diverse places and times.
