Booklover’s Day: Get Some Ink

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

 

Sherlock: 221B

Lucy Pevensie: A Lamppost
