Via and here; there is even a blog devoted to literary tattoos.
This is the tattoo replication of a Picasso painting which is featured on the front cover of Edith Grossman’s translation of Don Quixote. One hundred pages in and having a blast. No plans for a tattoo though.
>(laughing) Not getting a tattoo either but bookmarked that extra fun blog anyway. Thanks! Glad to hear you are enjoying DQ as some of will be reading together this summer.
>Grossman's translation makes this edition a joy to read. I think you'll love it.Any literary tattoos, Frances?
>Really love that painting, but no thanks to the tattoo as well! Glad to hear you're loving the book. Will be reading along soon.
>A fantastic book! And I have half a mind to get a Quixote tattoo on my face like Queequeg. What's the worst that can happen?
>Claire – If I was going to get a tattoo it wouldn't be a bad choice.Kevin – That is another glaring gap in my reading I need to resolve. You thinking, just under the eye?
>There's a gal who works at Old Navy around the corner from where I live, and she sports a tattoo on her forehead as if it were a billboard. Difficult to miss, that. Why go under the eye when there's such valuable real estate above the brow? Honestly, though, I do like that Quixote tattoo… Very nice. Cheers, K
>Anthony, thanks for visiting my blog. I've loved looking around this one. As far as tattoo's go – I can't help wanting some version of a peacock in homage to O'Connor and her brood of peacocks.
>Shelf of One's Own – Thank you for your comments.Peacock is a nice idea, though you've got to go pretty big to make the impact.
Sometimes there are tattoos that bring me all the way from not wanting one at all to wanting THAT one right now. The DQ one above is nearly that good. Fun post! I should really get round to reading DQ soon…
It’s almost the tattoo I’d get but not quite enough to tempt me.
DQ can make people do strange things so you just never know, by the end of the book you may have a new tattoo 😉
Hah, this is an older post that somehow got resurrected. I finished DQ long ago and withstood the temptation.
