Philadelphia Morrissey fans: Show a little skin this Sunday and you could be featured in an upcoming photo book. Mozzites with ink to prove it will be photographed and potentially spotlighted in a photo project showing Morrissey/the Smiths-themed tattoos and the stories/people behind them.


The To Me, You Are a Work of Art project has already taken to Chicago, New York, Orange County, Seattle, Portland and Oakland, capturing Morrissey ink tributes from around the country. On the project's Philly leg, locals can show off their tattoos (any size! and shape! and sentiment!) and have their fandom immortalized by photographer Patrick Moore.

Here's where to find him: The event will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 23, at True Hand (2424 East York Street.)
