From the Archive: The Tale of the Tattooed Woman, 2008

This is one of the comics I adapted from short stories by Rikki Ducornet from her 1994 collection, The Complete Butcher's Tales. We put them in a section titled "The Butcher's Comics" at the back of The One Marvelous Thing.

My idea was to use the tattoos as ersatz comic panels so that, in revealing them, her confession would also be a seduction. How'd I do?

Astute viewers will also find the tattoos from the Lydia song, right where they're said to be.
