Literary Tattooing

I’ve been thinking about a new tattoo for some time, and yes, this probably amounts to time wasting and avoiding writing! However, I’ve always meant to get more as I feel a bit ‘unfinished’, and today picked up Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 to look for a quote as he really inspired me to write as a teen – and came across the epigraph by the poet Juan Ramon Jiminez; ‘If they give you ruled paper, write the other way’. I remember having this scribbled on my history file during my A Levels and it’s great to think I still have the same attitude! While I was searching I came across a couple of fantastic blogs of note. Pen and Ink on Tumblr is beautifully drawn and written and The Word Made Flesh is a great one on literary tattoos.
