There’s this great book about working class history by Sharon Smith called Subterranean Fire. The title calls to mind the fires of class consciousness that sit beneath the surface of a supposedly stable economic system. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I’m pretty sure I want my first tattoo to involve something like this design, which is a direct reference to Smith’s choice phrase. The triangles are the alchemy symbols for earth and fire, and I’d love to get something with a very stylized water color look overlaying the two triangles. In general, I’m just in love with the phrase “Subterranean Fire” as a reference to socialist class consciousness. Check out the book and use the phrase!
