16 Inspiring Inkwell And Quill Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Way before iPads and pencils, our ancestors were using inkwell and feather quills to write letters, novels and poetry.

It was refined and romantic, enough to inspire the inked nostalgic people... Inkwell and quill tattoos are for the lovers of writing, literature and antiques. The little bottles of ink sometimes spill their content and give the opportunity to add some stain effects, with watercolor techniques. As for the fancy quills, they are make of the finest feathers, from ostrichs and other elegant birds, with precious details... Are you in the mood for love letters, fine poetry and elegant objects? Then you could fall for inkwell and quill tattoos...
