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

This tattoo, I got as an ode to the love of my live and J. K. Rowling, Severus Snape, and Harry Potter as a whole.
In my eyes, Snape died for love, like the middle brother who owned the Resurrection Stone.I had the circle tattooed green, to represent not only Snape and his house’s colour green, but also Lily and Harry’s eyes.
I fell in love, and I will “Always,” love that person, much like Snape.

I’m a fan of JRR Tolkien, chose to write “There And Back Again” because I believe that no matter where we go or who flee adventures live, will always have a place to return to and will never be the same.

Hello fans of literature! And tattoos! I’ve been getting some very nice but somewhat blurry submissions lately. If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted your tattoo yet, this may be the reason. So please submit an in-focus picture here.
