9 Chuck Palahniuk Quotes To Inspire Your Next Tattoo

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

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.

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.

Some get tattoos to make something out of their pain, to perhaps even make something beautiful out of something so tragic.
