Review

The play on words of this new title wishes to emphasize that this review will not approach the skin from an apologetic angle precisely, but on the contrary, it is indeed a scientific review which in an attractive form leaving an important place à l’iconographie will offer in-depth articles, double-blind appraised by the scientific committee, after a first review by the editorial committee.

With number 1 2018, the requirements of a scientific journal are in place and operational with the effective work of the committees (editorial and scientific).

 

The journal is open access, you can read all the articles online for free, as well as download them in PDF format.

Our publications

The journal is freely available online and it is possible to download the articles in PDF format. We nevertheless offer you the possibility of purchasing the magazine in paper format.

LITERATURE IN THE SKIN. TATTOOS AND IMAGINARY.

Lines, graphic lines, inked surfaces, prints, scrolls and vellum are all terms that tattooing shares with writing. Between the writing objects, the gestures of writing or drawing and the tattoo artist’s needle, a sensitive and palpable relationship is established. The literary returns to the skin, which itself is transformed into an archive and becomes the object of a fictionalization of bodies.
