Hey there marauders and thespians alike. Welcome to our 2nd installment of 'Tattoo Tuesdays.' For those of you who missed last week, Tattoo Tuesday is a weekly feature (hosted by our good friend Tara over at 25hourbooks) where we feature different literary tattoos worn by those hardcore book nerds out there.
This week in keeping with our new
BATTLE OF THE BARDS CONTEST
the theme of Tattoos Tuesdays will all be tattoo's relating to who else but 'The Bard.'
First up we have:
“The prince of Cumberland! that is a step
On which I must fall down, or else o’erleap,
For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires;
Let not light see me black and deep desires”
- Excerpt from Shakespeare’s Macbeth (I.iv.48-51).
This tattoo was submitted by Hilary to Contrariwise tattoos
What a beautiful tattoo!
"Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind. William Shakespeare, Hamlet"
This tattoo was submitted by Mckenna. She sent this little bit about her choice:
"It's from Hamlet, 3.1.101. I think that Ophelia's line rang truer to anything I have ever heard. I read it and then had it tattooed a week later. since then, i've seen nothing that made that feeling rise within myself. i suppose that's the point of a tattoo! haha."
Thanks so much to everyone that has offered up your lovely tattoos!! During the entire battle of the bards contest be on the lookout for many more tattoos relating to specific plays.
How about you marauders? If you were to get a Shakespeare related tattoo what would you pick and why! We would love to hear from you.
Make sure to go get yourself and all of your literary lovin friends signed up for the contest! We can't believe how much response we have already had and we can't wait to see how this all plays out.
