I realized I never posted this bookish tattoo! This is from when it was fresh and swollen, but it‘s healed quite nicely! That makes 3 bookish tattoos, 8 total 😍

tpixie Cool! What‘s the reference? 4mo
cleoh @tpixie it‘s line 325 of act 3 scene 2 in A Midsummer Night‘s Dream: “And though she but little she is fierce”! 4mo

tpixie @cleoh awesome!!! ♥️🥳📚♥️ 4mo
LiteraryinLititz That is SOOOO cool!!! I love that line but that‘s a really creative way to show it. 4mo
cleoh @LiteraryinLititz thank you!!! I‘ve wanted to get this quote tattoo since I was 15, but was always a little unsure how I wanted to express it! I love this one though, because only I know what it refers to! 4mo
ImperfectCJ I love that quote! Classy way to ink it, too. I wonder if there are cool quotes at that location in others of his plays...now I have to go look! 4mo

Hour 6 challenge: excuse myself I just woke up. But here is my first and, so far, only tattoo from the incomparable Bitch Planet. I got it done 2 years ago, after I turned 30. I wanted it for at least 5 years before I committed to getting it permanently put on my body. I have no regrets because I will always be noncompliant.

I finally got my Dregs tattoo yesterday! Right now it‘s a swollen sunburn-y mess, but I love it. #NoMournersNoFunerals #BookishTattoos

TheBookKeepers That‘s epic 11mo
Soubhiville Wow! Very cool! 11mo
ness @gibblr Here‘s a pic from when I first had it done! 💚 8mo
gibblr That‘s legit! Love that it‘s obviously SOC, but has its own spin on the style. 8mo

I did a thing on Saturday! I got the book symbol tattoo'ed on my arm! I loved this series so much and it definitely made an impact on my life! This is only my second bookish tattoo and I can't wait to get more! 😂 I plan on going down my forearm in a straight line of small dime sized tats. #bookishtattoos

Lizylindz03 Cool! 14mo

The Lorax | Dr. Seuss
post image

@abbsinwonderland #bookishtattoos I tried to fit in as much as I could. The bottom has the little monument at the end of the Lorax with the stone Unless. The tree branches are part of my favorite cover of American Gods, at the very top of my shoulder is Luna‘s Patronus. on my shoulder blade is the Lorax carrying himself off into the clouds and down the back of my arm, Pipkin‘s pumpkin from the Halloween Tree and the deathly hallow symbol on a book

Craftylikefox With the multiple sittings he would tell me how he has read The Lorax many times to his kids. He also started to read American Gods by the time he finished my tattoo! 2y
abbsinwonderland @Craftylikefox 😍😍 I love it! So many worlds combined!! And yay! You converted someone in the process! 2y
Gezemice I used to know The Lorax by heart - also because I read it to my kids so many times :) And just read American Gods, it was an insta-fave. (edited) 2y

Gonna get a tattoo soon, and playing with the idea of a cat on a books/books. I've been wanting to get some sort of cat tattoo (for my Gabby 💕), but this is a way to make it bookish too. HMMMM... I'd want either the tail to curl into a G/g, or maybe a G on the book spine? Or titles of fave books on the spines? Idk, any suggestions?

SarahSaysRead Note - all of my other tattoos are black only and very simple, so that colorful one isn't very me, but its super pretty. 2y
TheKidUpstairs I lobe the one on the top left. And it seems like it would be easy to have the tail curl into a funky g 2y
Lacythebookworm The colorful one is nice! I also like the one above it 😻 2y

SarahSaysRead @TheKidUpstairs Yeah those 2 on the left are my fave. I'd have to make the kitties look furry somehow though, my Gabby is a med-hair. 2y
SarahSaysRead @Lacythebookworm That top right one is cool b/c there's a lot of books and I think it'd be easy to turn the tail into a letter. 2y
Alfoster Agree @Lacythebookworm ! I love the one on top right! 2y
JenReadsAlot I like the top 2! 2y
monalyisha I love the idea of turning the tail into a “g”! What a cool, subtle tribute. 2y
