A poet who worked as writer-in-residence in a tattoo parlour for a year has accepted a similar post at one of Britain's top public schools.
Patience Agbabi's influences include rap, ska and punk
Patience Agbabi's employment at Eton, the Berkshire school previously attended by princes William and Harry, will run from 16 February to 4 March.
Headmaster Tony Little said she will teach classes, deliver talks and speak individually to interested pupils.
"I'll be talking about poetry and tattoos to the boys," said Ms Agbabi.
"She is quite a lively character and I'm looking forward to meeting her," Mr Little said.
He added that the tattooed poet, whose influences include rap, ska and punk, would be a "great stimulus for creative writing and thinking" for the boys at Eton.
From 1999-2000 Agbabi, was in-house poet at Flamin' Eights Tattoo Studio, in Camden, north London.
She told the London Evening Standard: "I don't think any subject will be out of bounds - I'm just going to be myself.
"I don't know if they have ever had anyone like me in their school before. I imagine I'll provide quite a contrast."
