Literary Tattoos

Later this week, Alex is also going to talk about literary tattoos (and, for the record, she TOTALLY gave me this idea and I'm copying her.  It's fine.)  When she talks about it on Thursday, it will be literary characters that have tattoos.  Mine?  Well, I'm just going to show you fun book tattoos.

First and foremost, you have to read THIS LIST on Buzzfeed about 50 awesome tattoos.  (That was your warning about Buzzfeed.  What you do with the next four hours of your life is not my fault.)  Some of the tattoos are even of books we've reviewed on here!  But I think my favorite is the one from "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."

I also want to point out that some people are a little too devoted to their fandom.

That's some life choice right there.

However, there are a lot of tattoos out there that are GREAT representations of their literary counterparts.  Some of them are tiny and discreet.

Just a little diddy to show your love.

Some of them are a little more elaborate, but look awesome.

Some of them, like the below two, remind you of your childhood, which makes them infinitely more awesome.

Alex would have me remind you that comic books are books to.  Therefore, it stands to reason that comic book tattoos would fall into the category of literary tattoos.

I know this tattoo is simple, but a lot of people get just words from their favorite books.  This is a tattoo of one of my most favorite literary lines.

This last tattoo has a fairly recent tattoo style going on that makes it look like an airbrush or a paint swipe, which is actually really cool.  Combine it with a book reference, and you can't really go wrong.

Have a literary tattoo?  We would love to see it!!  In fact, we would love to see ANY tattoo you have. And maybe, if you show us yours, we'll show you ours.

Edit: HEY LOOK!! One of our readers sent us a picture of her literary tattoo!

This is Tamara's tattoo!  It's from Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.  Too cool!


  1. Where do I send you a pic of my literary tattoo??

    1. It won't let you embed it into the comment? Well, you can always send it to reviewmetwice@gmail.com and we'll add it to the post!

  2. Woop!!! Love seeing my tattoo on your blog. :)

    1. We love having it!

      (also, are you in a wedding dress? Because that is equally as awesome. :))

    2. Yes, but not mine! I was doing a bridal head wear photo shoot for a designer in Manhattan's website. I cropped out the head piece though, so we could just focus on the tattoo, hah!
