We asked you to send an email to with pictures of your very own literary tattoos, and you did not disappoint!

Here are your stunning tattoos inspired by your favourite books…

Every reading addict knows that the only thing better than a good book is a good book and a dog at your feet! Dogs make the perfect reading companions, not least because they never interrupt, and are often happy to be read aloud to.

Whether you have a little ‘Scrappy Do’, or a big galumphing ‘Hooch’, I’d bet that when you’re reading, he or she is by your side. As you may have guessed I’m a dog lover, I’ve had two dogs for years, and losing one earlier this year was so hard, I found it difficult to read without her. Read More
