17 Typewriter Tattoos For The Author Within

21inkedd in Tattoo Ideas

Until the rise of the personal computer the writing tool of the masses was the classic typewriter, although for a number of vintage lovers and hipsters it still is. For many the typewriter is a symbol of what went before; an image and tool often associated with literary greats of the 20th century and a reminder of how some of the greatest works of fiction were written. Even today the legacy of the typewriter lives on, the QWERTY keypad we all know and love came from the first commercially successful typewriter; the Sholes and Glidden Typewriter, also known as the Remington No. 1.  ... Look even literary giant Ernest Hemingway had a typewriter so they must have been good!!

He also offered the following insight;

'There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed'

So then, for all you budding authors and future literary greats take a brake from your next masterpiece and be inspired by these 17 typewriter tattoos!
