Booked All Week

and next week, too

Lit Tats!

with 2 comments

I like tattoos. I have two myself, and am planning on a few more eventually. I’ve been contemplating a book-related tattoo for a while now, but haven’t come up with anything particular yet. So, I was really excited to stumble upon this post last week at The Feminist Texican [Reads] about The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos From Bookworms Worldwide, a photo book by Eva Talmadge and Justin Taylor. These all take inspiration from specific books, whereas I’d like something generally bookish, but still: inspiration.

Watch the book trailer and check out the associated photo blog.

YES. Right up my alley.

What do you think? If you were to get a literary tattoo, what would you choose? And even if you’re not a tattoo person, do you have a favorite lit-quote or bookish image you could hypothetically imagine making a nice/interesting tattoo? Let’s talk!

  1. I’ve been uhmming and ahhing over one for the last two years! I keep changing my mind about the quote and location but I think I’ve finally settled on one. You should also check out http://www.contrariwise.org/. The owner has stopped updating but it’s a great collection.
