Be Our Tattooed Guest: Amir + Turning the Pages

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.

Today's guest has a tattoo that reminds us to just keep reading...


DesignText: "Don't close the book, just turn the page."

Story: I used to work for a cruise line company as a broadcast technician (video girl) and last year I decided that I was done with ships, time to move on and plant roots somewhere. On my last port which is Cozumel, Mexico, I walked in the tattoo shop that crew members frequent with that thought in mind. I may be done with this life but it will always be a part of me, it will always be who I am so that's why I'm just turning the page. It's a new chapter, not a new book. If that makes any sense. :)

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

  1. I love that tattoo and the script! I really like this feature. Even though I'll probably never get a tattoo, I love looking at pictures of them. Especially if they're bookish ones. :)
