Fan Service: Amanda Palmer Conducted a Body-Ink Q&A Over Twitter Last Summer

While writing up a recent post on Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer‘s interactions with their devoted fanbases (of which there is a lot of overlap), I came across this great blog post from Palmer, published in July 2010. The performer had previously started the tradition of #LOFNOTC (Losers of Friday Night on Their Computers) parties, but wanted to make that night fresh. So began the body art.

Then two more from AFP…

There is something so sweet and unapologetically wacky about this. Palmer is an artist that you know doesn’t take her fanbase for granted; the way they communicate is what you would expect of friends.
