22 Literary Tattoos That Book Lovers Will Appreciate


When books touch our hearts, they stay with us forever. The joys of reading were perfectly captured by George R.R. Martin when he famously said: "I have lived a thousand lives and I've loved a thousand loves. I've walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read." The following tatted-up bibliophiles were so moved by certain literary works that they decided to have them occupy a special place on their bodies, choosing to have phrases, symbols, scenes, and book jacket artwork inked into their skin.


Referencing classic novels such as The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice, modern masterpieces such as Haruki Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and timeless children's books, these tattoos will remind you of how magical reading can be.
