Bookish Tattoos

By Kate F.

In today’s generation, many, many people have tattoos. These tattoos can be of virtually anything: a loved one’s name, religious symbols and even references to popular novels. Below I’ve compiled a list of some of the best bookish tattoos --- who knows, you may even be tempted to get one!


1..      “Three ravens, one for each family member I left behind” --- Tris Prior, DIVERGENT


2.      The lyrical words of Laini Taylor, author of DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE.







3.      You may just tear up while getting this THE FAULT IN OUR STARS tattoo.


4.      The odds will certainly be in your favor with this Hunger Games inspired tattoo.


5.      A Marauder’s Map tattoo that only shows up under a black light? Mischief managed.








6. Having difficulty picking out which is your favorite? Have no fear! You could always combine all your favorite series into a tattoo as depicted below!


If you love the idea of getting a tattoo to commemorate a beloved series, but are not too sure about having it inked on your skin for the rest of your life, you could always consider getting a henna tattoo done as well! They look like normal tattoos, but they wash off eventually.  I hope you enjoyed seeing all sorts of different bookish tattoos, and thank you for reading!
