Here is the first fleshglyph I've published. There are probably precedents to this new form( I seem to remember Geof Huth(that master of glyphs) photographed a cut on his foot), but I'll offer a definition here; A fleshglyph are those marks found on the body which seem to convey textual qualities. They can be scratches or marks where something(clothing etc) has pressed onto your skin. Fleshglyphs are often asemic, but can sometimes convey letters and in rare circumstances ones that convey meaning ( I have one that was a scratch on my knuckle that said:Y). obviously the problem with recording them is that they are often on inconvenient parts of my anatomy. More are on the way.
