A Celebration of World Poetry Day at Tattooed Mom!

Join us for the first ever Tattooed Mom curated Celebration of World Poetry Day!

For this event, we hand picked a few of our favorite local poets and asked that they each pick a poet whose work inspired them, whose words they wanted to lift up, and whose poetry deserves recognition. The resulting line-up is an astonishing & diverse group of voices, all converging at Tattooed Mom on March 21st, celebrating the internationally recognized World Poetry Day.
