Be Our Tattooed Guest: Alyssa + Falling Into Books

Welcome to Be Our Tattooed Guest, an original feature here on Beauty and the Bookshelf! This feature is all about tattoos of the literary, poetic, and bookish variety, and people showing them off! To learn more about Be Our Tattooed Guest, please go here.

We have two tattoos today, and they're totally bookish!


Artist: Carlos Vanst @ The Dutchman Tattoos in New Westminster BC, Canada.

DesignSmall book, plus a quote that says "Books Fall Open, You Fall In."

Story: Books have always been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. My boyfriend has this poster in his room and I absolutely fell in love with the saying. It just completely embodied everything I felt about books. I had to have it as a tattoo, and it was very impulsive but it's easily one of my favourite tattoos I have! I have the book on my right inside wrist and the quote goes up my collarbone and onto my shoulder!

Thanks for sharing your tattoo and being our tattooed guest, Alyssa!

  1. I actually commented on this last night but my comment didn't get through for some reason :( Anyway, I love your tattoo Alyssa! I have a thing for quote tattoos. And I've always wanted a tattoo on my wrist but I never really know what to get but I really like yours :)
