Sabrina Vourvoulias’ Ink is about a nation in which “passing” means being able to hide the code tattooed inside the wrist of every person foreign- born or of foreign ancestry. It is a complicated system of blues and blacks and greens meant to be permanent, but that can be obscured or even removed by those with the resources or inclination. It is a nation in which one’s status can shift from one day to the next, depending on political currents or even on whether or not one is pregnant. In other words, it is a nation much like the one we live in today, which is why six years after it was first published, Ink is still pertinent and coming out in a new edition. — from the new introduction to Ink by Kathleen Alcalá
