Booklover’s Day: Get Some Ink
I love the smell of fresh printer’s ink (so it’s a good thing I work in a bookstore), but this year I have noticed another sort of ink that’s soaking up a lot of literary flavor: tattoo ink. So, I got to wondering what sort of tattoos my favorite literary characters would get if they so desired.
Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot
Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows
Lucy Pevensie: A Lamppost
Arthur Dent: A Geranium
Gollum: The One Ring
Ender Wiggin: The Enemies Gate Is Down
Ebenezer Scrooge: A Ghost
The White Rabbit: A Pocket Watch
Hamlet: “To Be or Not To Be”
Jay Gatsby: A Daisy
Holly Golightly: A Blue Box
James Bond: A Martini Glass
Katniss Everdeen: A Mockingjay
Don Quixote: A Windmill
So, what tattoo do you think your favorite literary character would have?
