Get your skins tainted and echoed with the haunting words of Chuck Palahniuk, critically-acclaimed author of Fight Club, Choke, and more.
I picked nine of the most tattoo-worthy quotes straight out of Palahniuk's works. It's quite difficult really as Chuck Palahniuk is the type of writer whose words will definitely echo within you long after you put down his book but it's a pretty decent list. And if you're a human being willing to get their mind tickled and beliefs questioned a teeny bit or more, pick up a Chuck Palahniuk book and you'll see what I'm talking about. Enough for people like me to want to get their skins stained with his words.
“I don't want to die without any scars.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
Can't talk about Chuck Palahniuk without mentioning Fight Club—his most known piece yet. Many found themselves in the book and I believe Fight Club-inspired tattoos deserve a piece of their own I just might write soon.
“We'll never be as young as we are tonight.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Rant
Many reason they get so many tattoos young because they'd like to enjoy the feel of ink in their skin while they're still in the prime of their youth. And I can't blame them.
“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Diary
Some get tattoos to make something out of their pain, to perhaps even make something beautiful out of something so tragic.
“May I never be complete. May I never be content. May I never be perfect.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
The goal of goals. Mark it.
“Without access to true chaos, we'll never have true peace.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
“We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Diary
“Nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
Simplest truths in life.
“Sorry, mom. Sorry, God.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
“What makes earth feel like hell is our expectation that it should feel like heaven.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Damned
