Literature in Your Skin


If you need a few minutes to break away from your day, why don’t you head on over to Tattoo Lit, where the word is made flesh. It is updated regularly with submissions of tattoos inspired by literature.

Virginia Woolf, Shakespere, and even Shel Silverstein are represented.
