My literary quote tattoo…..
|—||Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle (via mynameiscollins)|
My third tattoo, and my first with colour. Now, wherever I go, I’ll always have a couple of books with me :)
|—||Iris Murdoch (via evatalmadge)|
This is a quote by Henry David Thoreau. I found it in Letters To A Spiritual Seeker. He is one of my favorite authors.
Now I’ll never forget to bring a pen ever again. It is writing forgive me in reference to Buddy Wakefield’s “Human, the Death Dance”.
|—||HARUKI MURAKAMI, IQ84 (via sabrina-t)|
I got this tattoo at Tattoos by Fabio in Cambridge, UK. It is a quote from the Hobbit. The full quote reads “Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool! he said to himself, and it became a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb.” My dad read The Hobbit to my brother and I and this quote has always stuck with me since.
(Resubmitting because i think my previous submission was blurry, since it was approved then deleted)
My second tattoo from Scary Carrie in Lawrence, KS and my contribution to the thousands of other “So It Goes” tattoos.
Vonnegut’s book is one of my absolute favorites, I couldn’t help but get this inked. The arrow is from a quote that I felt went along with the other, “An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.”
Hope you like it!

The other half of the poem is on my other arm, it reads:
yes is a world
& in this world of yes live
Both tattooed by Anabela at Way Cool Tattoos in Kitchener, Ontario!
