I’m a book blogger for almost four years, and in love with books since I can remember. Recently I made my pin-up inspired bookworm in my blog logo (www.lostinchicklit.com.br) as a form of homage to the books and the wonderful friends I’ve made on this journey. And I could not be happier, because besides all this, I now have in my skin for the rest of his life a drawing made by my baby sister!

I was on the fence about which quote I wanted on my left forearm. As this is my first tattoo I did not want to make the mistake of getting a quote that I might regret. So I went with ‘simplicity’, a shortened version of Bruce Lee’s quote, ‘Simplicity is the key to brilliance’. This way, I have control over what I put on my forearm, with some inspiration from Bruce Lee. I like it as it serves as a reminder about our crazy lives, and to stand back for some perspective.
I suppose it is similar to what some people have with ‘unless’ from The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.
“You told me once that a soul isn’t something a person is born with but something that must be built, by effort and error, study and love. And you did that with more dedication than most, that work of building a soul - not for your own benefit but for the benefit of those who knew you.”
-Chad Harbach, The Art of Fielding

This is my “So it goes.” tattoo. I read Slaughterhouse Five in tenth grade and I feel in love with it. I’m studying to be a high school English teacher and I thought this pays homage to a great writer.

I have “Life is Wonderful” tattoed across my arm as a reminder, and it is now my favorite body part!
"The road goes ever on…" from J.R.R Tolkien. It’s from one of the walking songs in The Lord of the Rings series.
