Have you checked out our various Features pages lately? Julie and I are all about Features posts. (Who doesn’t need an occasional break from reviews?) In this new feature post, we will be discussing What Books Taught Us. And no, we don’t mean cooking, crafting, or organizing. We are talking about serious, useful skills. Like how to pick a literary tattoo. We want to make sure all of our readers are prepared!
Do you regret that Tweety Bird/Tasmanian Devil/Micky Mouse tattoo from college? In this episode of What Books Taught Us, we are going to focus on some characters who have tattoos. In case you are looking for some inspiration yourself. Plus, I really just wanted a post for all the fan art!
Feyra from A Court of Thorns and Roses series: I cannot even begin to express my obsession with this series! In A Court of Thorns and Roses, Rhysand gives Feyra a very special tattoo to help her in her trials against the Evil Queen. Included in the tattoo is a funky eye. That sees all.
Which is on full display in this scene.
Now that is a statement outfit!
We also learn about Ryhsand’s tattoos in A Court of Mist and Fury.
The Night Court is full of tattoos!
Karou from A Daughter of Smoke & Bone series: Another all time favorite series for me. And more eye tattoos! Eye tattoos are a must! In this case, Karou and the other chimera revenant have hamsa tattoos.
How totally cool would that tattoo be!
Barrons and the rest of the Nine from the Fever Series: Barrons and the other Nine are covered in tattoos. Mostly of Celtic/Tribal designs.
Maybe not the direction I’d choose for a tattoo for myself. But it doesn’t hurt to look!
Lucas Maxfield from the Contours of the Heart Series: Maybe because this was one of the first NA books I read, I don’t think there is a much better book boyfriend out there!
Still not sure which direction to go on your new tattoo? Buzzfeed has a list for that.
Do you have any literary tattoos you want to share?
