Transcript of Inked Well

Inked Well By: David Kirby Theme David starts off by talking about a man who tries to sell stolen motorcycle parts on eBay and ends up getting caught. The police recognize his foot tattoos seen in the pictures. He goes on to talk about how he hates tattooed people, and in doing so he goes out and talks to different people trying to find a reason behind why they got their tattoos. In the end he ends up coming to a realization about people with tattoos and changes his perspective on the whole subject Back Ground info Longtime professor at Florida State University where he teaches 19th century American Literature and Creative Writing.

THE END From reading this literary piece I feel that it is very relative in our everyday lives. Each an everyday people are always being judge by their outside. I gain an understanding that it is not always right to judge people based on physical attributes. sometimes all it takes is a little conversation and stead of going out an placing judgement on certain people.
