I’m excited and in a lighthearted mood because I leave for the Florida Writers Association Conference at Lake Mary today. I thought I’d do a fun post to match my mood.
Although I’m not quite sure what the above quote really means, I’m confident that it is the only type of tattoo I’ll have in this lifetime. I have nothing against tattoos, I simply try to avoid any sort of pain at all costs. However, when I ran across Kimbooktu's blog (I swear I don’t know how I found it) on Bookish Tattoos, I couldn’t resist. I had to stop and take a peek.
Stop by Kimbooktu to see other examples. Even if you are not interested in tattoos, you may enjoy the site because it features bookish gadgets, such as bookholders, adorable Library Dogs, or great looking book ends.
That’s not the only site for literary tattoos. At yuppiepunk.org. you'll find "A (Not So) Complete History of Literary Tattoos," including excerpts from Dickens and Plath and pictures of Alice in Wonderland and the Little Prince. Drop by contrariwise.org for some incredible, colorful tattoos of scenes from Where the Wild Things Are.
I enjoy a lot of things in life, but I don’t need to be reminded of what they are by having their imprint on some body part. Evidently, however, lots of people are into this type of thing.
