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


Arthur Dent: A Geranium


Gollum: The One Ring


Ender Wiggin: The Enemies Gate Is Down


Ebenezer Scrooge: A Ghost


The White Rabbit: A Pocket Watch

Hamlet: “To Be or Not To Be”



Jay Gatsby: A Daisy


Holly Golightly: A Blue Box


James Bond: A Martini Glass

Katniss Everdeen: A Mockingjay


Don Quixote: A Windmill
