I’ve always wanted a very small tattoo that was maybe a remembrance of my mother or one that was part of lyrics to a favorite song. However, I keep seeing on blogs and websites a surge in bookish tattoos. I’m talking about favorite characters, quotes, and other bibliophile-ish stuff. This is awesome to me. Maybe someday, if I grow a pair, I’ll get a bookish tattoo. What an interesting conversation piece!Anyways, I decided to google some of my favorite books and authors to see what tattoos came up.
On the Road/Jack Kerouac tattoos:
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’”
