Hi, this tattoo is of a quill and a quote from Pride & Prejudice. It’s my sixth and favourite tattoo. It reminds me to make good choices because I can control what is nourished in my life.
This is my mockingbird. To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book of all time, and I had to pay homage to it.
My first tattoo: a quote from an episode of Doctor Who that I found incredibly appropriate given my ambitions of being a writer. It’s written in the font that Harry Potter was published in. I can’t ever lay eyes on it, except in reflections and pictures, but I know it’s there and it serves as a reminder that life is short, so we need to make our stories good ones.
