Title: Is a tattoo a prop?
Post by: DaveSilverberg on January 22, 2012, 11:23:04 AM
Apologies if you've discussed this before on the forum or elsewhere...

Some Toronto poets and I were talking one day about the prop rules and we wondered how PSI viewed tattoos. If a poet references his/her tattoo during a poem, does that violate a prop rule? No one else has access to that, unlike a mic; then again, it's part of one's body, one's skin, and I've seen poets refer to their, say, hair without getting any penalty.

Thoughts?

Not a prop. It's the same as pointing to a scar or a bald head or anything else that would pass the 'naked-in-a-room' standard.

I'm guess a tattoo may not be a prop... but getting tattooed on stage while spitting a poem about tattoos would be ..... unless the tattoo artist was available to everyone in the room! ok.. next idea.. tattoo party poetry slams...!
