  • literary tattoos

    While I am not inked, I have spent some time imagining what my hypothetical tattoo might look like. It would definitely have a literary slant of some sort. Perhaps a doorframe for Adrienne Rich's poetry collection, "The Fact of a Doorframe", perhaps a simple pair of spectacles for my love of James Joyce, or a tiny Winnie-the-Pooh holding a balloon on the small of my back. 

    Here are some fiction fans and their literary tattoos of choice:

    "And Still I Rise" Maya Anjelou

    The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

    Where the Wild things Are, Maurice Sendak
