This is my third tattoo and my first literary tattoos. They are the stars from the corners of each page of the Harry Potter books.
“If you’re a bird I’m a bird.” - The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
My second tattoo, down the side of my spine.
Flannery O’Connor feathers and quote. Over my heart, as I am a Southern writer with a penchant for the odd, and carry that with me always.
`Love conquers all, let us too yield to love´-Virgil
The classical latin poem, the Aeneid, was transcribed by vikings into old western norse. The quote you see on my arm was uncovered by archeologists in Norway after an old village burnt down.It suggests that not all viking were mindless thugs and pirates. I love the quote and like to pretend i´m a viking so it is perfect for me.
I am… I am… I am…
I have this ecg heartbeat with I am in a single continuous line around my ankle.
This was based on a quote from Sylvia Plaths ‘The Bell Jar’. I am also a 19 year old female student suffering with mental health problems and suicide attempts and to me this said that I have got this far, I’m living right now, and I will carry on. As long as this tattoo reads ‘I am’, then it is correct.
