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! 


Does your best friend carry her copy of Hollow City around with her everywhere? Does your cousin really love the Last Policeman series? Here are holiday gift ideas inspired by your (or someone else’s) favorite Quirk titles. (These also make great companion gifts if you don’t already have the book!)

Worst-Case Wednesday: How to Extinguish a Christmas Tree Fire

It always gets warm in the house during the holiday party—with everyone crowded in together, how could it not? But has it ever gotten a little too warm? Specifically, on fire kind of warm? To help deal with any small tree fires that may occur this holiday season, we're busting out The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Holidays.

How-To Tuesday: Crafting An Adorable Plush Penguin

All this month, we're cracking open Quirk Throws You 5 Awesome Parties for how-tos to help your holiday party be The Greatest. This week, we'll show you how to make an adorable Plush Penguin. (This tutorial is also available in Craft-A-Day.) When you have a friend close by, the frigid days of winter feel a little bit warmer. Send your party guests home with a pocket-size penguin who will keep them company even in the worst of winter weather.

Going Through the Nine Stages of NaNoWriMo

If you did NaNoWriMo this year (like me), you likely noticed a pattern among all of your friends who were also doing NaNoWriMo. There's a certain way things tend to go. If you didn't try NaNoWriMo this year but think you'd like to give it a spin next year, you should be warned. It's fun but exhausting, so here are the steps you have to look forward to in the pursuit of writing an entire novel in one month.

Celebrate Pretend to Be A Time Traveler Day with These Five Books

December 8th is Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day. (Yes, this is an actual day people celebrate). Essentially, you dress up as someone from the past or the future and go about your day pretending you don’t belong. You know, stare in awe at automatic doors or lament over the lack of hover cars.

Don’t feel bad if you, like the rest of the world, had no idea about this important holiday, because now’s your chance to celebrate—with reading! If you would like to be a part of this magical and Doctor Who-esque celebration, but have no real desire to run around your office or campus garnering a questionable reputation, I have some good news: you can let others do the time-traveling for you and enjoy it all from a safe distance! The literary Delorean awaits!
