Via the excellent Syntax of Things, I learned about this story. It seems that Georgia State University grad student decided to make sure the sound and the fury did signify something, if only on his skin. Shyam Sriram got William Faulkner’s portrait tattooed on his left pec. “I like Faulkner so much because it’s so challenging to read,” he said. Sriram already had Jack London inked on his other pec and he’s also considering tats of Steinbeck and Hemingway.
