My tattoo is a quote from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It reads “You have been in every line I have ever read” and is accompanied by a stack of books. I fell in love with this quote as soon as I saw it and had to get it. For me it means that books can get you through life and love and it represents my love of reading and literature.
The Catcher in the Rye themed tattoo (cover art partly finished with stars), with The Fault in our Stars (John Green) quote.
"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door." — Frederic Brown.
The last item on the list of instructions given to Jonas for his assignment as the Receiver, given to him by the Giver. The Giver was one of my favorite books growing up, and still is today.

My first tattoos. Right arm from “Einstein’s Dreams” by Alan Lightman. My left the symbol for chaos.
Here’s my J.R.R. Tolkien themed side piece. The quote is from a poem in The Lord of the Rings. The dragon is taken from an illustration of Smaug from Tolkien’s The Hobbit. I saw it and instantly fell in love with it.
The quote was done at Da Vinci Tattoo in Wantagh, NY and the dragon was done at West Haven Tattoo in CT.
