36 Favorite Literary Tattoos For 2013

Advertisement

Tattoos often hold the words that are most meaningful to us. A design can showcase lyrics of a favorite song, or words from a favorite book. Quote tattoos are a great way to keep the powerful words close by forever. People draw on a variety of inspirations when it comes to choosing a suitable quote for their tattoo. Lines with rich poetry or those that hold a positive thought are often chosen for tattoo designs. Interesting patterns alongside the text frequently enrich the meaning of the design.

Quotes about love and life, fighting injustices, and peace appear in many literary tattoos. Neil Gaiman quotes are quite popular for their spirit of freedom and adventure. People also enjoy getting inked with deep and thoughtful lyrics. Nat King Cole’s words on love, lyrics by contemporary singers like Allison Iraheta, or the universal words of peace by Bob Marley figure in many tattoo designs. The text tattoo art inked in different fonts sometimes includes small images like bleeding hearts, stars, or waves. Slanted lettering in a traditional style gives a stylized look to tattoos. Newsprint style designs look neat and modern. Flowy text tattoos often use an artistic handwritten style design. Take a look at these tattoo quote pictures.
