When your love of books spreads beyond the page, what do you do? Get tattoos, of course. Well, that’s what I do. I ink my nerd into my skin. Symbols that mean more to me than the books/shows that inspired them. Defiance and Protection. They are mine forever. I get multiple compliments and comments on them. They’re like geek homing beacons. From the guy losing my new mattress or the group of strangers at the comic con comparing where our Deathly Hallows tattoos are, they always make me smile.
However, if you don’t want to go the permanent route, you can always buy literature related jewellery. As some of you may know, Pinterest can be a deep dark hole of wasted time, but man, have I ever found some pretty necklaces on that thing. Like most things of that site, I don’t own any of the things I pin, but I want to.
Here are some of my faves:
Know your Dewey Decimals
Alice captured the heart of a good book
We’re all waiting for this delivery, aren’t we?
Write your heart out
Rebellion sometimes needs some help
There’s no shame in displaying your passions.
