Beatnik Tattoo Day

Yesterday was really fun. I tattooed Maiwenn another fan of the Beat Generation writers. She got a girl beatnik creating at her typewriter, while smokin’ and drinkin’, with the words: catatonic highway and near ecstasy from “Howl” by Allen Ginsberg. I dressed up for the occasion! We listened to “Beat Jazz”, Miles Davis “L’Ascenseur pour ├ęchafaud” and the great Jimmy Smith. I love the Miles Davis album which was the soundtrack to a french film, it was recorded in Paris. I love Jimmy Smith because it mixes the organ and jazz, but makes me visualize circuses and old movie theatres.
