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.

Today we have a tattoo featuring a favorite author of Prongs, Kurt Vonnegut.

We got this picture from LiveJournal:

Here's what he has to say about his tattoo:

"Kurt Vonnegut is one of my favourite writers, so his "tombstone" is perfect suit for me. This phrase "Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt" can be my creed, my agenda, my slogan. Except "was" :) After a long conversation with my wife, we decided to change it to "will be". It will be beatiful for my karma :) From one side, it looks really vonnegutian - "will be" on the tombstone. Absurdic and humorous. But from the other ... foolish :) The whole life with stupid thing on my back... yep... But, who cared? So, sorry me for this amendment to the master."

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!
