What do you do when you love a book more than words (or tweets) can express? When no amount of rereads can ever sate you? When a book speaks to you on such a deep level that it becomes a defining part of who you are?

You pay somebody to inscribe bits of that book all over your body with a very painful needle, of course.

Here are some of the most beautiful book tattoos we’ve seen inspired by fantasy novels and comics.

Harry Potter

2. The Hogwart’s Sorting Hat


Keely tattos at Jolie Rouge in London and I can confirm this studio is a total nerd paradise.
