Tattoos Inspired by Books

Tattoos: visible proof of our love for a specific person or thing. So how would a book lover choose to show their devotion to the written word? The sky is the limit, there are a multitude of tattoos that one could get, though they usually fall under one of several headings. 

Book Quotes
Quotes taken directly from the pages and transferred to skin

Book Illustrations
Illustrations from the books themselves

Book Images
Tattoos of books and reading in general

Any combination of the above

How about it? Did any of these images inspire you? Let me know.


  1. I love quote tattoos! If I ever got a tattoo, it would most likely be a quote, and honestly probably from my favorite book! These are super cool!

  2. I've often considered getting a book tattoo. It would be hard to decide on one, though, especially after taking so many literature classes. I'd feel like I'd have to defend my reading of the text all the time.

  3. If I was to get a book tattoo, it would probably be something written by Ayn Rand, what can I say, she speaks to me.

  4. I'm a huge fan of tattoos! And I've always contemplated getting a tattoo representing The Great Gatsby since it's my favorite book. Anytime I see someone with a tattoo from a book I think it's great. But, I generally think that about tattoos anyway.
