The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
This quote is from the book A Tale of Two Cities, which happens to be my favorite book. I was very specific about the font looking as though it was transferred off the page and onto my leg (upper thigh). I researched many typeface and was set with Garamond. I also was adamant about the text being left aligned and I’m very happy with the end result. Tattoo done at FatKid Tattoo in Escondido, CA.
My friend and I got matching tattoos of this adorable cat which was done by the flawless Sylvia Plath. Plath has been my inspiration for such a long time, and I knew I wanted something tattoo related to her. Also, I love cats.

This is my fourth tattoo, but my first literary ink. I am absolutely in love with Harry Potter, and I have been since I was 11. I love this line that Snape utters when asked if he still loves Lily, after all this time. I love everything it represents - enduring love, the permanence of the series, of books in general, how Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home, and how I am, always, a writer.

This is my Ouroboros tattoo based on Vonnegut’s sketch in his book Breakfast of Champions;
I got that tattoo both to commemorate the book and how it got me through one of the lowest points in my life and to honor the idea of circularity, that as we are always in the act of consuming ourselves we are also also in the act of creating ourselves.
