Tattoo Tuesday!!

Hey there Marauders!! It's our favorite time of the week once again!!
For those of you who are new to the site here's a bit of background. Tattoo Tuesday was started by our good friend Tara over at 25HourBooks and celebrates our love of literature plus the people like us who are obsessed enough to ink something literary on their body! Every week we feature a literary tattoo that interests or compels us. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ink.

This week one of our lovely readers, Matthew, sent us a picture of his "Angels and Demons" tattoo.

Here's what he had to say:

"When I came across the Illuminati Diamond depicted in Dan Brown's "Angels & Demons", the detail and configuration of being able to read the wording from any angle amazed me. I have always loved to read and thought that getting a tattoo of the Illuminati Diamond would be a good representation of that. I brought it to my boy's cousin, who is a tattoo artist, and explained to him what it was and the story behind it - he then added certain illustrations and designs around the diamond to symbolize the elements (I think he did a fantastic job). This piece is definitely my favorite of the tattoos that I have. It's nice when someone sees it and knows what it is... it usually opens up a good conversation about favorite novels and authors."

We think this was a good choice, and we're glad to hear that it is literary conversation starter! Thanks Matthew!

Alright folks, that is all for this Tuesday. Don't be too remiss, for we will return next and every Tuesday with a brand new literary tattoo for your viewing pleasure. We encourage every one to check out Tara's site as well, or even feel free to send us an e-mail with any tattoo's of your own!


  1. Oooh I like this one! The illustrations around it fit perfectly :)

  2. A tattoo that gets people to talk to you about books is a winner in my book!


You solemnly swear you are up to no good...
