Happy Friday Cupcakes! It's been a looong week and I wanted to start the weekend off by talking about something fun- Literary Inspired Tattoos!!!
I love books and I love tattoos...so it would make perfect sense that I LOVE tattoos inspired by books and literature. In fact, I love both SO much that I have two literary inspired tats of my own...
Harry Potter Inspired Tattoo
This tattoo is on my inner left forearm and proudly displays my love for all things Harry Potter. As you can see there are several symbols representing the world of Harry Potter - wand, lighting bolt, snitch, ink & quill- and of course, the infamous "Mischief Managed". To me, mischief managed represents the idea that a little bit of mischief and fun is a daily necessity and accomplishment!
General Fairytale Inspired Tattoo
This tattoo is on my inner right forearm and isn't inspired by one specific book or story, but instead is inspired by all things fantastical and fairytale-ish. I suppose it kind of symbolizes my imagination and reminds me to never quit believing in magic, fairytales, and make believe.
Here are some pretty awesome literary inspired tattoos I found on the interwebs...
Alice in Wonderland
Lord of the Rings
Where The Wild Things Are
Shel Silverstein Inspired Tattoos
Chronicles of Narnia
More Harry Potter
Now, I wanna see YOUR literary/book inspired tattoos or your favorite book tattoos!
If you have a tattoo inspired by a book/story/character/writer or have come across any awesome book tattoos and want me to share them in future Lit Ink posts just send me an email with the subject "Lit Ink": firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you think about literary tattoos?!
Leave your thoughts in the comments
Hey, Cupcakes! I just wanna say thanks for the comments and interest in this post! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves literary tattoos. It seems as though some of you may have gotten design degrees with all of the artistry shown in these tattoos. Since this seems to be a pretty intriguing topic I'm going to try and do a weekly Lit Ink post, every Friday, with pics of literary/book tattoos and maybe weekly themes (book quote tats, classic book tats, YA book tats, etc) AND if enough people are interested perhaps other bloggers will do Lit Ink meme posts of their own! So check back next Friday (really Thursday night) for the first "official" weekly Lit Ink meme post...I'll try to come up with a great theme this week.
This weekly meme is now called TATTED THURSDAY and will be featured on Thursdays. Click HERE to learn more.
