Oh, how Pinteresting! Literary Ink


Book Riot recently sent out a shout-out to their Facebook fans to expose themselves...

Their literary tattoos, that is.

It was so much fun to look at everybody's literary ink, that I had to check out my beloved Pinterest for more inspiration.



 
To Kill a Mockingbird




Sylvia Plath




Alice in Wonderland




Where's Waldo? What a crafty idea!




Love this Alice in Wonderland tat




Ernest Hemingway




Terry Pratchett's Discworld







LOVE this!




This is just cool as heck!


I wonder if it looks as good on skinny arms such as mine? You're right. It might look like I have leprosy, so I'll keep looking for me... But it looks good on this person...

I had to limit myself as to not bore the heck out of you. But I have a lot more favorites pinned on my literary ink board.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Do you have any tattoos? I have one. A "tramp stamp" on my lower back. When my baby was about 5 she happened to see that it STILL hadn't washed off! Hers always washed off. Sometimes it took TWO baths, but they came off. She was quite upset and offered to scrub. I really don't know when she realized I was gipped and it was never going to come off....But I think she's made peace with it.

It's so lovely to see you and we'll talk soon,
Angela

  1. I like the first Alice one and the e.e. cummings one. These are great. I have a quill tattoo. That counts as literary right?

  2. How weird is it that I just finished reading an email from my tattoo artist? She's working on my very literary design right now :) The process is a long one but I'll definitely be sharing it when it's done!

  3. Those are some pretty interesting tattoos. I love the one on the woman's back with the tower of books and the girl climbing the ladder to get a book. That's pretty creative.

  4. These are so interesting and beautiful. I love the one with the book stack going up the spine! I'm just too much of a chicken! :)

    1. It would take some serious dedication of skin real estate, and pain tolerance. But it's just so cool.

  6. Hi Angela, I love the Alice ‘have I gone mad’ one and the stack of books – that one is truly amazing, but it must have hurt like heck to get it done. I like them but I don’t like pain, so I won’t be having one any time soon. Pinterest is fabulous!

    1. Lol...Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of pain either. Pinterest IS fabulous, but a huge time-suck! I can easily lose a whole afternoon. Have a Happy Easter, it's great to see you.

  8. I don't have an tattoos (I am not a fan of needles). I love looking at all the literary tattoos. They are so amazing. I have seen some very cool Harry Potter related ones that could tempt me. :) Thanks for sharing!

    Your story about your daughter noticing your tattoo is too cute!

    1. Jess, you're not the only one that hates needles. Ellen Degeneres recently voiced her opinion about the flu shot. She said, "You know what's in the flu shot? The flu. And do you know what's in the needles? Needles!"
      yep. she had her camera guy get the flu shot.

  9. Aww, the story about your kiddo made me smile. I have a Vonnegut tattoo-- "Goddamnit, you've got to be kind" from "There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind" in God Bless You, Mr Rosewater.

    1. Hi Rebecca, Thanks a million for stopping by! Your tattoo sounds incredible, I'd love to see a photo (if it's family friendly :)
      Just writing the story about my baby girl made me smile too... Again, thanks for coming by. Don't be a stranger :)
