Tattoos sting. So what better way to offset the pain than a serenade of spoken word and craft cocktails? That's the premise behind Friday's Animal Spirits event, where you can hear some epic poetry, sip some Hemingway punch, and possibly score a free tat, too.

Friday evening, poet Tom Healy and legendary tattoo artist Duke Riley (collaborators on new tome Animal Spirits) and poet and editor Kevin Young will all make appearances at the Freehand Miami as part of the O, Miami poetry festival's line up.
For adventurous attendees, there are 14 spots available for a permanent reminder of their love for the literary. Two artists will be inking on site at a pop-up parlor. While the tattoo is free, spots can be reserved online for $10. Then, you'll get to choose from a series of design options, all in the literary/Miami/animal spirits genre, in keeping with the event's theme.More »
