NYC Lit Events: December 15th - 21st

Despite the rapidly approaching holidays, literary events in NYC show no signs of slowing down. This week brings opportunities to see legends like Neil Gaiman and Robert Gober, applaud the sartorial choices of awesome teen girls, and celebrate the power of the selfie. Rounding out the week will be the epic reading of A Christmas Carol by some of New York’s most beloved writers.

We at Quirk fully support getting tattoos of amazing things (just ask Eric about his epic Jules Verne tattoo). If you really, truly, ohmyGodIcan’tstopthinkingaboutit love something about your fandom (and you’re not afraid of needles,) a tattoo is the perfect way to wear your heart on (the skin beneath) your sleeve.

Ten Striking and Beautiful Tattoos Inspired by The Little Prince

Via The Little Prince

Just like the rest of the Internet, we're really excited about the film adaptation of The Little Prince. Have you seen the trailer yet? No? What's wrong with you. Please go take a look. We'll wait.

Okay? Good. Let's move on. 

One thing I love about the bookish community, is that we sure do love wearing our words on our sleeves. Like, literally. As tattoos. Last year, our friends at BookRiot rounded up all their awesome bookish tattoos, and this year, BuzzFeed's own Isaac Fitzgerald released an incredible book about ink, both literary and tattooed. 

So I can't help but wonder... will we see an increase in Little Prince inspired tattoos once the movie hits? I'm sure tattoo shops across the country had an influx of Lord of the Rings requests. I hope so. There's just so much to draw (and tattoo!) from. 

And there are already a lot of Little Prince tattoos out there, so we've rounded up some of our favorites. Take a look!
