A Writer’s Date Night

A Writer’s Date Night

Artist unknown (although it might be Alice Kirkpatrick.) ALL ROMANCES #2, 1949.

I know this is obvious, but in the original art, those strange, shadowy images on the woman’s arm and face aren’t tattoos. They’re images from the other side of the page that bled through when the cover was scanned. On the other hand, if you’re into tattoos…then they’re tattoos!
