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.
1. 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.
3. The Deathly Hallows symbol
Lord of the Rings
4. The Gates of Argonath
5. The White Tree of Gondor
6. A Hobbit hole
Game of Thrones
7. House Baratheon
8. House Targaryen
9. Ghus from Saga
Ghus! 😇 😖 💔
10. Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy
11. Mad from Where the Wild Things Are
12. The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland
