There are words that move you, that seems to have been written for you, that you want to live by. We all have a favorite author, a favorite book and, indeed, a quote talking to our soul of reader and human being. Everything can inspire great quote tattoos. For centuries, literature has hit the unconscious of readers who enjoyed collecting words. And as soon as tattoo art became a tool for self expression, readers and word lovers have started to ink their favorite literary quotes.
These quote tattoos can come from any kind of text, from the classic literature to the modern best-sellers, from beautiful poems to complex philosophy. We can identify to some characters, to their emotions and to their view on the world. Books open new horizons to our minds and they help us find our place in the universe. That's why we keep the best place for words: in our skins. Of course, lettering is the best way to get readable quote tattoos, but you can also be more creative and use your reader's imagination for real work of art. From the ink of the books to the ink of the tattoos, words are universal... What is (are) your favorite quote(s)? Have you inked it yet or are you just a fan of quote tattoos?
