Cruise Ink–Gainesville, FL


“A tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye.  As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition.”

-V. Vale and Andrea Juno, Modern Primitives

Hey Cracking Spines fans!

For all of you out there who are inked and inspired (or wannabe inked and inspired) my friend Collin Jordan is a great up and coming tattoo artist known as Cruise Ink and he’s based out of Clockwork Studios in Gainesville, FL. His unique style is a blend of traditional meets modern whimsy and he’s definitely a rising star to keep your eye on. I know where I’ll be the next time I’m in Florida. Collect your own original Jordan before it’s too late!



About Chelsea McDonald

As an avid reader since I was big enough to hold a book, I continue to enjoy losing myself in the thrall of a good story on a daily basis. Since many of my cohorts do not share the same passion, Cracking Spines will be the perfect outlet to express my adulation or frustration concerning the books that cross my path. In this way, my loyal followers will be able to enjoy the stories that are worthwhile and avoid the duds altogether. I also have a Shelfari account at View all posts by Chelsea McDonald
