The banning of books is a form of censorship by which essays, books and poems etc are banned.

Often banned for political, religious, legal, moral and commercial reasons the banning of books has been performed by nations, governments, schools and religions alike. Of course it is unsurprising that books featuring graphic violence and inappropriate language face opposition but classics such as Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and To Kill A Mockingbird have also been banned!! But fear not, the banning of books does not stop the freedom of the written word and where a book is banned in one place it is welcomed in another.
If you're a fan of classic literature and love a good bit of rebellion then these banned book tattoos will surely please. Featuring some of last century's greatest works of the written word these 15 rebellious banned book tattoos will show you that censorship will never diminish readership and how a good book will always be a good book whether it's banned or not!!
