Of particular interest was the work of New York-based Thomas Hooper and the esoteric work of Yann Black, but really, you could open the book to any page and find something that you’ll want inked on your body forever. Indeed.

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in Video on Saturday 24 November 2012

Ah, this is novel. In more ways than one. In the Hysterical Literature series, women read excerpts of great literature, trying to stay composed while someone under a table is discreetly pleasuring them with a vibrator.
