Be Our Tattooed Guest: Traci + Infinity

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's a symbol--figuratively and literally.


ArtistMy cousin TJ actually designed and did the tattoo. He is hoping to open up his own shop once he is done with his tours overseas. 

Design: An infinity sign.

Story: My not so obvious bookish tattoo is an infinity sign on my foot because I couldn't choose between two of my favorite book quotes. The first quote is "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite" from Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The second quote is "Some infinities are bigger than other infinities" from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I chose the infinity sign because it represented both of those quotes for me and I'm always reminded of those words when I look at it. 

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