Tattoo Tuesday: Syracuse Daily Orange Features ‘Most Intriguing, Inspiring Stories Behind One’s Art’

The latest edition of “Tattoo Tuesday” premiered today in The Daily Orange.  The weekly column in the Syracuse University student newspaper aims to ferret out, photograph, and share “some of the most intriguing and inspiring stories behind one’s art.”  It is part of a larger push within the paper’s Pulp section to publish diverse, reader-friendly features.


As DO editor-in-chief Mark Cooper tells me, “Tattoo Tuesday adds a front-of-book element to our newspaper. . . . It was an idea that the Pulp section staff (our feature section) wanted to create last year, in early 2012.  We aim to find unique tattoos that students on campus have and tell their stories.  It also provides a shorter read and a visual for readers.  We try to have a front-of-book element in Pulp each day.  We have one called Wardrobe Wednesday, which highlights a student’s fashion choices, Beer Bites, a weekly short column about a different brand of beer or special beer, and we recently debuted an FOB on new apps that are useful to students.”

Here is a screenshot sampling of the other FOBs Cooper mentions:
