Creatively Cute Book Quote Tattoos Are A Thing Now

Creatively Cute Book Quote Tattoos Are A Thing Now –

 

Great literature has a way of staying with us. A compelling story can encourage us to find the beauty in pain, the humor in life, and exercise compassion for ourselves and others. Many of us find literary writing so powerful that we want to remember a phrase for the rest of our lives. Those who love body art choose to immortalize it as a book quote tattoo.

Book quote body art comes in many forms. Some folks choose to display just the phrase on their skin sans color or additional imagery. In this case, they let the words speak for themselves. Other designs incorporate illustrations that add some flair to the text. In one tattoo, the endearing quote “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird,” from The Notebook is accompanied by two lovebirds and a colorful floral arrangement. Although it’s an elaborate display, a phrase from Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear in Loathing in Las Vegas proves that even just a little color and interesting letterforms can take text from ordinary to extraordinary while conveying the essence of the entire book.

Check out a beautiful and thought-provoking collection of book quote tattoos below.

Thanks John Steinbeck for some cool words that make a great tattoo. Thanks @grawk for taking one hundred photos of it. *** Sometimes you’re walking down a street in Monterey during a weekend getaway at John Steinbeck’s cottage and you think “ i’m going to walk into the closest tattoo shop and see if there is a capable human that can make this idea happen.” And you do. And it does. And the universe introduces you to a person you were probably meant to know. *** And then somehow IG DELETES THE WHOLE POST. OR MAYBE YOU DO BECAUSE YOU ARE DAFT. *** #johnsteinbecktattoo #literarytattoo #tattoo ⁣ #YATTED #THATSFORYOUKELSEY ⁣ #instatattoo #bodyart #tattoocommunity #thickthighssavelives #tattooart #tattooedcommunity #inklife #support_good_tattooing #tattooculture #inkedlife #tattoooftheday #supportgoodtattooing #besttattoos #momswithink #inkaddict #inkstagram #tattooedlife #tattoolover #inkedbabes #effyourbeautystandards #plussize #inked #amazingink #tattoolove
