The Word Made Flesh
Brand new and first ever tattoo! The quote is from Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (The Miller’s Tale to be exact): “How fancy throws us into perturbation! People can die of mere imagination, So deep is the impression one can take.” Chaucer has been one of my favorite classical authors since high school and this is my favorite quote of his about the sheer power of the imagination. The font was inspired by the Jane Austin font I found at  http://www.dafont.com/jane-austen.font

    Warning: any decent artist will tell you that’s a terrible place to get a tattoo. You’ll have to get it touched up if...
