Edward Gorey’s The Doubtful Guest
This is from “Duck for President” by Doreen Cronin (illustrated by Betsy Lewin). I got the tat after my first year teaching. It’s my favorite children’s book.

My favorite quote from my favorite poet, e.e. cummings.
Fun fact: the font is called Jane Austen because it is based on her handwriting.
"Write drunk; edit sober"
Because I am a writer.
I believe in this.

This happens to me every. single. time. Not my first literary tattoo (I have T.S. Elliot’s signature on the back of my neck) but definitely my largest, and first with color. Many more are planned, I just need money!

That is the last sentence of the last Harry Potter book. I always wanted a tatto refering to the book and that was the most meaningful and creative idea I could have.
I love books. I love To Kill a Mockingbird. This is a combination of those. My third tattoo, my first literary one. I may go for more…
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
