I admit to rarely paying much attention to the alumni magazines that show up in my mailbox semi-annualy.  Just enough time goes by between the arrival of the publication that I’ve lapsed on berating myself for not finding a cure for cancer or sending my flock of pullets to the moon.  This time I was pleased to see a feature on fellow Lewis & Clark alum who’ve stayed in the Portland area.  They are up to some creative things, many are independent business owners.  One, Melanie Nead who originally had plans to be an English professor is the owner and one of two lead artists at Icon Tattoo.  She’s a backyard chicken addict and offers a discount on any chicken related tattoo design.  I did not find any chicken ink on their site but am sharing a few other images.
