Tattooed with COOL

Okay, my life as a writer is now officially cool.  A lovely woman by the name of Winn Goll is wearing Russell and Holmes on her skin.  Or at any rate, versions of Russell and Holmes—feline versions:

These fabulous (and no doubt painful) tattoos (yes, the needle kind) were done by Greg Whitehead at Scapegoat Tattoo in (no surprise here) Portland, Oregon.
