29 Brilliant Literary Tattoos

By May 17, 2015August 6th, 2021Your Photos

I posted a picture a few days ago of a literary tattoo, prompting many of you to share your own creations! So many of you sent in pictures that I put out a shout out for some more and now we have a pretty impressive collection. If you’re thinking of getting a literary tattoo yourself, let these be some inspiration to you!

Just as an aside I don’t have any tattoos myself, although I always promised myself that if I ever became a published author I’d have a semi-colon tattooed on my middle toe. There’s still time, right?

I’m letting Jane Austen have the last word!

I hope you enjoyed those, I certainly enjoyed putting the blog together. You’ll notice I didn’t include any of the literary references for the more obscure ones, I know how you like a challenge!

Thank you to each and every one of you who submitted a photograph, you really make For Reading Addicts what it is.

    Never too late. I’m in my 60’s and recently added two tattoos. I only have one other. One of the new ones is if the Cheshire Cat, eyes, nose and grin on inside if wrist.
