Tattoo Club

About

Sometime during the year of 2009, in the midst of the Great Recession, we (Eric and Eliza) spontaneously got our Two Dollar Radio logo tattooed on our wrists. It seemed to serve as a physical display of our never-ending dedication to our company and to our mission. We were living in farm country, in Ohio, a new baby company with neither industry connections nor stacks of money, the economy had just tanked in a big way, news outlets everywhere were proclaiming the "Death of Print" just as we were getting into the game... and we weren't ready to give up on our vision.

(Plus we like tattoos.)

Then our thrice-published Two Dollar Radio author/friend Joshua Mohr sent us a picture showing that he had gotten the logo tattooed too! And then our dear friend and professional bookseller Emily Pullen got the tattoo on her arm too! And the club was born.

In the fall of 2010, we publicly launched our Tattoo Club, inviting readers to tattoo the Two Dollar Radio logo on their person in exchange for free books. Since then 29 members have joined the Tattoo Club from all across the country — from Texas to Iowa, from California to New York. While at events or conferences, meeting folks who've gotten the tattoo has been an incredibly fun and rewarding experience, almost like running into a long-lost friend. So, we certainly welcome any and all future club members!
