We probably all have books that we love. Maybe a book from your childhood. Or a book you read over and over.
If a book inspires you, what does it inspire you to do? Give it as a present to a friend? Read it to your grand kids? Request that your library carry it?
How about…get a tattoo?
Publisher Black Ocean says if you get a tattoo inspired by one of the press’ books, you’ll get a lifetime subscription to its titles.
Sound a bit over the top? Three readers have already gotten tattoos. If you’re thinking of doing it, you can’t just take a picture of your tattoo. To insure that your tattoo isn’t drawn on with a black marker, you have to have a picture made as you’re getting the tattoo.
Think those people are a bit too inspired? They’re not alone. According to GalleyCat, the most popular literary tattoo inspirations are “Kurt Vonnegut, e.e. cummings, and Shel Silverstein.”
Any book or author that would inspire you to get a tattoo?
