10 of the Coolest Book-Related Tattoos

Posted by Simona DeDominicis

If you’re a lover of both literature and body modification, you’ll understand the longing to get a book tattoo.

Between quotes, illustrations, and tattoos of just books in general, we’ve compiled some amazing pieces of ink! Here are ten of my favorite, beautiful book tattoos.

And if you can’t get enough of them (I sure can’t), check out the website Tattoo Lit, now a book published by our friends Harper Perennial.
